I no longer am based at the LSHTM
From 1 September 2016 I took up a position of Associate Professor of Global Health Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science (the LSE) - I remain an Honorary Associate Professor at LSHTM as well.
Free E-BOOK: my book entitled: The Politics of Evidence - From Evidence Based Policy to the Good Governance of Evidence. This is available free open access (click here) or as a hard or paper back (click here). It is also free to download on Amazon Kindle in many countries.
I am a multidisciplinary social scientist with primary interest in policy analysis, including the application of political and sociological concepts to health care use and health policy making.
I recently lead the European Research Council supported GRIP-Health programme (Getting Research into Policy in Health), which runs from January 2012 to December 2016. The GRIP Health website has a range of open access publications available (free to access and to share or distribute).
As I have now left LSHTM, my teaching and PhD supervision responsibilities have moved to my new institution, the LSE
Primary research interests:
- The use of evidence in policy, particularly: how ideologies shape and frame evidence, and how institutional structures can improve the utilisation of health evidence.
- HIV/AIDS prevention and policy - in particular in low income settings.
- Social and structural drivers of HIV risk and vulnerability, including the relationships between poverty, wealth, and HIV infection.
Past Research work: Maternal Health, including behaviour and decision making for use of services.
