  • Sensitive and challenging questions around healthcare, and equitable access to healthcare, particularly for populations who have historically been under represented in research and underserved in healthcare.


El began her academic career focusing on quantitative methods – specifically food safety microbiology.


Following maternity leave and a career break, she returned to research and academia at University of Warwick, completing her Masters (Child Health) part-time, whilst working as a Breastfeeding Counsellor.


El’s PhD research focused on experiences of birth trauma, and accessing support for birth trauma for parents from marginalised and racialised groups, particularly LGBTQ+ parents, and mothers who are Black, Asian or dual-heritage, and birthing in the UK.


El has worked on a number of qualitative process evaluations of clinical trials related to maternal and reproductive health.


El worked on an evaluation of the NIHR Associate Principle Investigator (API) Scheme.  The qualitative element of this evaluation explored the experiences of participation in the scheme from the perspectives of the API participant, local PIs and CIs of the research trials involved and other staff across the NIHR Clinical Trials network involved in delivery and participation in the API Scheme. 


She has also worked with colleagues in School of Nursing and Midwifery on a number of projects which focus on risk and violence. 


El has most recently completed the qualitative work package of the SWAN study – an Assessment of Sex Workers Health Needs, funded by Birmingham City Council, and working alongside co-researchers with lived experience of sex work.

El was also named on the successful grant application for the Dept for Education Triennial Serious Case Reviews report (2017-2019). She worked on the in-depth qualitative analysis of Serious Case Reviews where children and young people had been harmed or died, as part of a joint collaboration between University of Birmingham and University of East Anglia.
