She joined the Primary Care Unit in 2014 as a Research Assistant in the Behavioural Science Group. During this time, Miranda worked on a number of research projects looking at the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of digital interventions on health behaviours such as physical activity (VBI Trial), smoking cessation (iQuit trial) and medication adherence (PAM).
Other projects undertaken at the Primary Care Unit: systematic reviews of smartphone-based health behaviour assessment tools, and an NIHR SPCR funded audit of Patient and Public Involvement across the Unit.
Miranda joined the Cardiovascular Group in January 2022 to work on on the SAFER trial, an RCT to determine if screening for atrial fibrillation in primary care is effective and cost effective in reducing stroke compared to current practice.
Miranda’s research interests are in health psychology, and in the engagement and involvement of patients and the public in health research.
