I joined the DHI in 2016 as part of the Research and Knowledge Management team. My work involves providing research and support for DHI challenges and projects. I aim to create meaningful and engaging research reports, that are accessible to audiences across multiple disciplines and levels of insight.
I studied Biomedical Sciences with honours in Neuroscience at the University of Edinburgh, before studying an MSc in Science Communication and Public Engagement.
My time at the DHI has allowed me to attain a greater understanding of how academic research can have greater effects beyond initial investigations and how the health and social care services develop new ways of working and governing.
Personally, I am interested in creating positive change in the NHS through realistic and innovative means, and wish to develop my skillset to help raise the public’s understanding and rhetoric regarding public health, and the health and social care sector.
