Dr Lavanya Thana
15-17 Tavistock Place
I am a research fellow in the Policy and Innovation Research Unity (PIRU). I joined the School in 2019 after completing my PhD in mental health services research at Imperial College London, where I also contributed to randomised controlled trials of complex psychological interventions for adults and children with a range of mental health conditions. Prior to this, I was involved in various health-related primary care informatics projects at St George’s University of London.
I currently teach on the Principles of Social Research module and am a tutor for the MSc in Public Health.
My primary research interests are in patient experience and safety. I am currently employed on a national project, the Evaluation of the Integrated Care and Support Pioneers, involving a mixed methods approach.
