Lisa is an accredited hand therapist (British Association of Hand Therapists) and joined the Bart’s Bone and Joint Health team in September 2023. Lisa is a mixed methods researcher and an advocate for research opportunities for clinicians from the professions alongside medicine (nursing, midwifery, allied health professions, healthcare science, pharmacy and psychology – NMAHPPs). Lisa led the development of an impact capture framework for research active NMAHPPs within the NHS and looks forward to supporting research awareness, engagement and activity for these professions at Barts Health NHS Trust.


Lisa’s clinical research interests focus on rehabilitation after hand and wrist injury or other non-traumatic conditions. Lisa currently holds a Postdoctoral Research Grant awarded by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy Charitable Trust. This research explores how hand therapists can support their patients to remain in or return to work.

True to the physiotherapist stereotype, in her spare time, Lisa can usually be found outdoors running, cycling or swimming.
