After studying biological sciences and training as a post-graduate teacher, Carole worked for Voluntary Service Overseas in Nigeria as a science teacher. Whilst there, she gained an interest in infectious diseases, and returned to the UK to do a Masters degree in public health.
Carole then worked as an epidemiologist with Epicentre/Médècins sans Frontières in East Africa, carrying out operational research on diseases such as sleeping sickness, malaria, HIV/AIDS and meningitis. After returning to the UK, she became involved in pharmacovigilance, working on prescription/cohort event monitoring studies in the UK and Ghana on a range of medicines including those for asthma, diabetes, incontinence and malaria.
Carole works part-time as an Associate Senior Lecturer within the Research Design Service, assisting NHS professionals to design research projects in the South Central area. She is very interested in research designed to result in a definitive public health impact. She also contributes to teaching evidence based practice to Allied Health Professionals, with an emphasis on quantitative research methodology, in particular clinical trials.
