Claire graduated with a BSc in Psychology from the University of Birmingham in 2015. Following this, for 12 months she worked for a charity and assisted in the management of a number of public health projects across the West Midlands. This experience motivated Claire to return to the University to complete a Masters in Public Health with a focus on global health.
Shortly before graduating from her MPH, Claire was awarded a PhD scholarship from the University of Birmingham's College of Medical and Dental Sciences. This enabled her to continue her MPH dissertation research, which is investigating handover communication and continuity of care for chronic disease patients in Himachal Pradesh and Kerala states, India.
