I am currently working as an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Senior House Officer in NHS Fife. I am dentally qualified and have a keen interest in Orthodontics. Since graduation I have developed a keen interest in research. I am a Cochrane Oral Health Group author and have assisted in the development of Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme guidelines. My passion for independent, high quality, international research has led to me becoming an Antibiotic Action Champion. This opportunity will allow to me have a positive effect for the future of healthcare, promoting good prescribing practices and encouraging the development of new antibiotics. I would like to complete specialist training in Orthodontics and as an Antibiotic Action Champion leave a lasting beneficial effect on the future for antibiotics.
