I graduated in 2013 from the University of Edinburgh having studied Nursing and continued to do a Masters in Clinical Research at the UoE where I first worked with the EMERGE team. With the support of Dr Gareth Clegg I was awarded the Gardner Scholarship at the UoE which has allowed me to do a 3 year PhD project with the Resuscitation Research Group supported by EMeRGE.

My thesis is titled ‘A video ethnography of leadership during emergency department resuscitation’. I am interested in how leadership is initiated and maintained, as well as the factors that influence how leadership operates during resuscitation. I am particularly fascinated by the theories of informal or emergent leadership and how healthcare can learn from team psychology literature.

I am using video observation during my ethnography, and our emergency department is one of the first to publish practical guidance on how video can become part of routine care delivery. The Resuscitation Research Group is leading efforts to embed video audit and feedback systems in both the pre-hospital and in-hospital environment, and I believe video can become an integral part of future health care provision.

Further afield, I enjoy reading about wider health care issues, such as trial transparency, dissemination of research, patient safety and quality improvement. My greatest personal achievement came in 2014 when I wrote to my institution – the University of Edinburgh – and engaged with them about the AllTrials campaign. In July 2014, the UoE became the first Scottish University to register support for the AllTrials campaign (http://www.alltrials.net).

Sport and reading occupy any free time. The current top pick is Steven Weinberg’s To Explain the World.

In September 2016, former EMERGE research nurse Polly and I attended the 2nd Global Conference on Emergency Nursing and Trauma Care in Sitges (near Barcelona). Over 240 abstracts were submitted from 30 countries and we were privileged to be invited to present 3 separate pieces of work. These were: ‘24 hours in A&E: a video analysis of nurses’ clinical and non-clinical task performance during live clinical resuscitation episodes’; ‘It’s a silent leadership’: an interview and questionnaire study investigating staff conceptualisations of leadership during emergency department resuscitation’; ‘Clinical engagement with emergency medicine research’.
