PhD Student

Saydia graduated with a BSc combined honours in Psychology and Sociology. Enthused by the research methods implemented in Psychology, she went on to obtain a graduate diploma in Psychology. Her most recent academic venture was an MSc in Health Psychology from Aston University in 2015.

Saydia has a longstanding interest in critical care environments, and has continued her studies alongside her clinical practice. Her professional background is rooted within operating theatres, and is currently employed as an Emergency Department Practitioner.  Through her professional experience Saydia has come to recognise the importance of Human Factors and Ergonomics in healthcare.

Saydia has thus combined her passion for research with her clinical practice by undertaking a PhD at Loughborough University. She intends to implement her first-hand insight and knowledge as a healthcare professional to bridge the gap between academia and clinical practice via Human Factors and Ergonomics.

Research Group: Healthcare Ergonomics and Patient Safety Unit.

Her research interests lie within Healthcare Human Factors and Ergonomics, particularly patient safety.

Saydia is a part of the multidisciplinary pan-European TOXI-Triage project. TOXI-Triage aims to improve resilience and increase survival in response to Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive (CRNE) incidents. Her particular focus is on exploring the implementation of dual-use technologies in the Emergency Department CBRNE response.
