Trial Manager (FAIT)
I am currently coordinating and managing the FAIT trial, a randomised controlled trial comparing arthroscopy versus physiotherapy and activity modification for the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement, led by Prof. Sion Glyn-Jones.
I am a Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered physiotherapist. I completed a bachelors degree in physiotherapy from India followed by a research based masters degree in the physiotherapy division of the Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh. Prior to joining the NDORMS department in April 2013, I completed a PhD project titled ‘The influence of obesity on total knee replacement outcomes’ which was jointly funded by NHS Lothian Board and Queen Margaret University.
In addition to clinical and academic research experience, I have undertaken teaching, assessment and module management as a part-time lecturer for undergraduate and post graduate physiotherapy students at the Queen Margaret University.
