Amy works in participatory ways in the UK and internationally - with government, civil society organisations, community groups and other academics – on policy topics relating to the wider determinants of health, healthy sustainable livelihoods, and inequality.

Amy has interdisciplinary public health experience, with particular expertise in the following cross-cutting areas:
community-led action to address inequality and improve living conditions; participation, power and influence as determinants of health; issues of inclusion and marginalisation in public health policy; and systems evaluation and participatory evaluation.

Examples of specific policy topics that Amy has worked on include: creating an inclusive economy, community development, child poverty, global health inequality and aid funding, healthy food environments (including trade policy) and the prevention of modern slavery and exploitation.

Prior to working in York, Amy was a Senior Lecturer in Public Health at the Sheffield Centre for Health and Related Research (ScHARR), University of Sheffield and Sheffield Director of the European Public Health (Europubhealth) programme.
