I studied History and Spanish at the University of Exeter and worked in NHS administration and management after graduation. I then moved into academia and studied for an MA in Public Policy and a PhD in Management at King's College London where I also worked as a Research Associate. I joined LSHTM in September 2014 where I worked first as a Research Fellow, and now as an Assistant Professor in the Policy Innovation Research Unit.

Teaching

My main teaching interests concern Health Policy and Management. I am Co-Module Organiser on Health Policy, Process and Power and Co-Module Organiser on Health Services Management. 

Research

My work at PIRU has focused on the application of Social Impact Bonds to health and social care. I have also been involved in an evaluation of the National Antimicrobial Resistance Strategy.

My main research interests relate to the relationship between evidence and policy making in health care and other sectors in the UK and internationally as well as the politics of Major Service Change within health care systems.
