BA (Hons), MSc (LSE)
Health Services Researcher
My work focuses on critically analysing the relationships between health and social care policy, practice and lived experience.
I have recently completed an in-depth ethnographic case study of integrated health and social care for my doctoral research. I am currently researching people's experiences of caring technology, exploring how and in what circumstances digital technologies can assist carers as part of the SCALS (Studies in Co-creating Assisted Living Solutions) programme.
Previously my career has led me from working in the areas of mental health and homelessness in the voluntary sector to senior roles in service development and commissioning in the NHS.
