My research experience spans twenty years in academic, not for profit, and government organisations with an emphasis on social issues, education and healthcare. I am interested in working with communities grappling with complex social issues, developing innovative solutions and wanting to understand the outcomes associated with their efforts. I have specialist experience working with children and young people in education and community settings. My research skills have also been put to use more recently in a business and strategy consultancy capacity, developing service and patient pathways, reviewing services and developing strategies for new programmes. I enjoy working alongside research participants, building capability and supporting self-directed research.
