Chair

Martha Belete

Hi I'm Martha - I'm an anaesthetic registrar in the South West of England and a previous HSRC research fellow continuing work with PQIP. Research, QI and learning from excellence are definitely passions of mine. As chair I want to support colleagues in research & quality improvement, showcase the amazing work that trainee research networks do and continue delivering great RAFT projects. In my free time I love a good spin class, hiking on Dartmoor and travelling abroad.

Vice Chair (Anaesthesia)

Kathleen Wolff

Hello, I'm Kat - I'm an ST6 Anaesthetic Trainee working in Leicester. My interests include Perioperative Medicine and Prehabilitation for Major Surgery. I have been involved with Trainee Research Networks since the start of my anaesthetic training. I am currently on the committee of MERCAT and was previously a Trainee Trust Lead for SWARM. Having learnt a huge amount about conducting research during my time involved with TRNs and RAFT, I am passionate about trainee collaboration and making research more accessible for all developing anaesthetists. I am very excited to be part of the new committee and working along side so many brilliant TRNs!

Secretary

Rebecca Hawes

I am currently a clinical fellow working in South Yorkshire and have used my fellowship to complete a Quality Improvement PgCert. I have been a committee member on SHARC for the last four years and through this have been the trainee-led for regional and national projects. I have also helped to organise the first SHARC regional research and quality improvement teaching day which was a real success. Recently I have completed the NIRH associate PI scheme for ObsQoR. I spend any free time brunching in the amazing independent café in Sheffield or walking our crazy dog in the peak district.
