15-17 Tavistock Place
I am a health systems researcher with a Masters in Sociology (University of Warsaw) and a PhD in Sociology and Social Policy (UCL SSEES). I am a member of the NIHR Policy Research Unit in Health and Social Care Systems and Commissioning (PRUComm). My interests focus on the political economy of health care systems in particular mechanisms governing allocation of resources including funding and payment mechanisms, sociolegal aspects such as governance, regulation, and accountability and social legitimacy of public provision systems as reflected in the public attitudes.
As part of the PRUComm team I have been involved in a number of research projects exploring various organisational aspects of the English NHS such as for instance an interplay between competition and cooperation mechanisms in planning local health services (with papers published in Public Administration and BMJ Open). Currently, I am involved in a project exploring the developments in the ICS policy and the architecture of system management put in place by the Health and Care Act 2022.
I am a Deputy Module Organiser and a seminar leader on the Health Services (1107) module. I also serve as a personal tutor, supervisor and marker on the MSc in Public Health. I have some experience of research degree student co-supervision and assessment processes.
I have worked on a variety of projects investigating different aspects of public service provision from the policy makers', providers' and users' perspectives. In my PhD I explored conceptualisations of welfare deservingness by Polish migrants in the context of the British welfare state. You can find some of the findings from this study in a paper published in the Journal of Social Policy.
I enjoy engaging in the debates and discussions with colleagues and students and organise a reading group. It is dedicated broadly to exploring the implications of employment structures and practices on care.
