My role with the ARC Oxford and Thames Valley is to facilitate and support the development of partnerships across the region, 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 molecular biology, virology and epidemiological 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 UK.
Over the past seven years I have worked on a diverse range of health protection, health improvement and health promotion projects. I have worked in a range of organisations, locally, regionally and internationally, including:
In addition to my role within the NIHR ARC, I work as a Consultant in Public Health at the UK Health Security Agency (formally Public Health England), where I lead on epidemiology and surveillance for the South East Health Protection Teams.
I am a fellow of the Faculty of Public Health.
