Biography

Grace is currently a research associate, working within the complexity in health programme and providing research support across a number of projects. She is a statistician for the cardiac rehabilitation Cochrane review centre

Grace holds a BSc in Mathematics and Sport and Exercise Sciences and an MSc in Cardiovascular Rehabilitation from the University of Chester, and a PhD in Medical Studies from the University of Exeter. In her PhD research she investigated the effect of cardiac rehabilitation on physical activity levels of patients with heart failure, and developed improved methods to estimate physical activity intensity using accelerometers in heart failure patients. 

She is experienced in quantitative research methods, using accelerometry to measure physical activity, cardiac rehabilitation and systematic reviews and meta-analysis. 

 

Current projects

  • Developing SPIRIT, CONSORT and STROBE extensions for accelerometry reporting guidance
  • An overview of systematic reviews for (Personalised Exercise-Rehabilitation FOR people with Multiple longterm conditions (multimorbidity) - The PERFORM research programme; Funded by: NIHR)
  • Behaviour change techniques and theoretical mechanisms within psychological interventions seeking to improve work outcomes among individuals with chronic pain: a systematic review and network meta-analysis (Funded by: NIHR, collaboration with Glasgow Caledonian University)
  • PACES: social connectedness and physical activity in ageing
