Research Assistant

At Imperial College London, Business School, I served as part of Prof. Sassi's STOP research project (Science & Technology in childhood Obesity Policy). It is worth mentioning that I designed and managed clinical trial in co- ordination with various parties to evaluate effectiveness of FlavorID. One of my key tasks was to recommend ingredient choices for users in meals through a recipe platform known as HappyPlate. Collaborated with recruitment agency to recruit participants. Not only this but I also assist with data analysis for the SHIFT project, run as part of STOP. My achievements are as follows: • Achieved 100% participation rate using multiple touchpoints. • Obtained ethics approval to drive trial by preparing all required documents. • Maintained contact with participants throughout trial and ensured everything completed on time. • Utilised R to create programmes for checking participant questionnaire completion rate in timely manner. • Conducted 15 semi-structured interviews with randomly selected participants to gather data on experiences during trial.
