Natalie joined the Academic Unit for Ageing and Stroke Research as Research Assistant to work in systematic reviews about interventions for sedentary behaviour, and to assist in conducting visits for a trial. Currently, she is working as Research Fellow for a systematic review and network meta-analysis about community-based complex interventions for independence of older people.
Natalie started her health research career after completing the PG Diploma in Health Research and Master of Public Health in University of Leeds. She had worked as a Clinical Research Officer in South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, before moving to the South for 2 years with her family where she worked as Data Manager in the Clinical Trials Service Unit of the University of Oxford. She worked in randomised controlled trials of pharmacological interventions in dementia, and in late-onset psychosis; and of assistive technology and telecare for people with dementia. She also assisted in the co-ordination for large-scale drug and surgical trials for cardiovascular diseases.
