Dr Jill Ferrari

Senior Lecturer


    I am interested in foot function and am presently looking at the use of the PROMs in children with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. I have a strong interest in evidence-based practice.

    My main field of interest is in children's foot problems (podopaediatrics) and particularly in the field of paediatric rheumatology, but I am also interested in biomechanics and podiatric research.
