Personal profile

Research interests

I am a health services researcher with an interest in health service design and delivery. I apply a whole systems approach to my work and combine my expertise in operational research, social research and digital knowledge to identify optimal solutions to complex, messy problems. I am also interested in implementation and sustainability of solutions, and actively engage stakeholders in my research to ensure acceptability and long-term use.

Recent work explores the impact of COVID-19 on communities, services, and individuals’ engagement with services. I am keen understand changes in how these systems operate, and how they can be modelled and better understood to ensure public health initiatives/service provision adapt appropriately to become/remain fit for purpose, post-pandemic. My most recent funded project will conduct place-based action research, working in partnership with citizens and organisations of two disadvantaged communities to design and test an intervention to support healthy weight and wellbeing.
