About me

About me

I joined the University in 2007, having worked previously at the Universities of Manchester, Birmingham and Kent. I am currently working on an NIHR/ESRC funded project on Dementia Friendly Neighbourhoods and a Big Lottery (DRILL) funded project on Costing Good Self-Directed Support. I have previously led research funded by the ESRC, Scottish Government, Dept of Health and Joseph Rowntree Foundation. Projects included comparative care policy and gender equality, disability support, women's politicisation, and partnership working between health and social care.
