Biography

I joined AMBS in June 2003. My research interests are in:

  1. The regulation, governance and improvement of public services, focusing particularly on healthcare.
  2. Evaluation and evaluation capacity strengthening - including the evaluation of health research and research capacity strengthening in low and middle income countries, and the evaluation of leadership development.

Prior to joining AMBS I worked for over 15 years supporting the planning of health and social care services, in a variety of organisational settings.

Research Interests

  • Governance of public services, including regulation and local authority scrutiny of health
  • Service and quality improvement in health and local authority services
  • Health research capacity strengthening in low and middle income countries
  • Evaluation methods
  • Literature review and evidence synthesis methods

PhD Supervision

I welcome PhD and DBA proposals concerning:

  1. The regulation, governance and improvement of public services, particularly if they include a focus on healthcare.
  2. Evaluation and evaluation capacity strengthening - including the evaluation of health research and research capacity strengthening, and the evaluation of leadership development.

I particularly welcome proposals that include a focus on one or more low or middle income countries.
