Hi I’m Catrin. In March 2020 I was awarded my PhD from the University of Bedfordshire in health psychology and public health. I examined a general practice intervention to encourage registration as an organ donor, and I now work at the MRC Epidemiology Unit, University of Cambridge putting my research skills to good use – by evaluating the Soft Drinks Industry Levy.
Based on my numerous ethics applications during my PhD including to a full NHS REC, I was driven to join PsyPAG as Ethics Rep to help other postgraduate going through this process. Ethics can be one of the most challenging aspects of postgraduate research, so please contact me if you are struggling with ethical issues during your research – including the NHS Ethics process and I will do my best to help.
