Overview

I am an Associate Professor in Knowledge Mobilisation and my work focuses on how healthcare staff and academics can be supported to learn from, and share their knowledge with, one another.

My recent work has focused on developing a service user feedback framework for improving integrated care, how health and wellbeing managers from different organisations share and create knowledge, how collaborative relationships between academics and NHS managers develop and how knowledge is exchanged within service delivery teams. I have recently completed an NIHR Knowledge Mobilisation Research Fellowship on how knowledge is mobilised across health and social care boundaries in community settings.

My teaching focuses on research and evaluation methods and stakeholder engagement.

Before branching out into health research, I had a career as a clarinet teacher and ran my own teaching practice. Find out how (and why) I made the move into health research on my blog.
