By empowering healthcare professionals with access to specialist databases and the skills to use them, librarians can have a positive, direct impact on patient care. I contribute to teaching on modules across the School, and also support the research activities of staff at the Royal Marsden.

I have worked in a range of higher education and healthcare libraries across the UK, with a particular focus on teaching information skills in innovative ways, and delivering tailored, high quality services to users. In my spare time I enjoy bouldering, playing the cello, and videogames.
