I joined the department in September 2014 as a Research Fellow in the Policy Innovation Research Unit. Prior to this I spent five years in the Department of Management at King's College London as a Research Associate and Teaching Fellow before which I spent seven years working in NHS administration and management.

History in Public Health


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. 


My current research project through the PIRU focuses on the implementation and evaluation of Social Impact Bonds in health and social care. My broader concerns relate to Evidence Based Policy and Knowledge Transfer, strategic level change in health care, and the ways in which policy changes impact upon both professionals and managers working across health care systems.
