I work across research, policy, service-use and audit leading an international team on evidence-informed policy and practice. I came to the Unit in 2000 and have undertaken research with service users, practitioners and policy-makers in health and education, facilitating and researching user-involvement in evidence-informed decision-making. I have worked on the development of national health policy and the audit of national government spending across all sectors. My expertise includes conducting, advising and supporting the use of a wide range of research techniques including systematic reviewing, one-to-one qualitative interviews and focus groups, online questionnaires, and qualitative and quantitative data analyses. I also have management experience having served as Assistant Director of the Unit for five years.
