My role with the ARC Oxford and Thames Valley is to facilitate and support the development of partnerships across the Thames Valley, particularly within Social Care and Public Health.
I’m interested in the interface between research and practice; bridging these spheres to ensure research is relevant to practitioners, and research findings can be incorporated into practice.
Prior to my role here, I spent ten years working in basic science, epidemiology and clinical aspects of HIV and Hepatitis research at King’s College London, Harvard School of Public Health, Botswana Harvard Partnership for HIV Research and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
Then, moving from research to applied Public Health, I undertook Public Health Specialty Training in the Thames Valley.
Over the past five years I have worked on a diverse range of health protection, health improvement and health promotion projects. I have worked with a range of health organisations, locally, regionally and internationally, including:
My work for these organisations has focused on tackling health inequalities, addressing the wider determinants and prevention of both communicable and non-communicable disease.
In addition to my role within the NIHR ARC, I work as a Consultant in Public Health at Public Health England, South East Centre
I am a fellow of the Faculty of Public Health.
