Maureen Twiddy

Senior Lecturer in Mixed Methods Research

Biography I am a behavioural scientist with over 10 years post doctoral experience. I lead the Institute of Clinical and Applied Health Research (ICAHR) Methods Hub and have close collaborations with the Hull Health Trials Unit, and the University of Leeds.

I have expertise in a range of qualitative and quantitative research approaches (co-design, surveys, observational studies, clinical trials, process evaluations, interviews, and focus groups). Much of my current work involves undertaking process evaluations linked to clinical trials, and conducting embedded qualitative studies aimed at understanding the experience of patients and staff involved, and developing interventions to improve trial recruitment
