I joined the Division of Health Research in 2010 as a member of the Centre for Health Equity Research and Knowledge Exchange (CHERKe). Before that I worked as an adviser in a policy evaluation team in Scotland providing support to local NHS boards and the Scottish Government to plan, monitor and evaluate their health improvement strategies.
I am currently working on a programme of research within the Liverpool and Lancaster Universities Collaboration for Public Health Research (LiLaC). LiLaC is a member of the School of Public Health Research (SPHR) funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). My expertise includes designing and conducting evaluations of public health evaluations, qualitative research methods and research evidence/synthesis.
My interests cover:
‘Themes in Scottish Asylum Culture. The Hospitalisation of the Scottish Asylum, 1880-1914’, University of Stirling, 2004.
