I am a medical anthropologist interested in applied health research and the development of rapid approaches to research. I work across five interdisciplinary teams, applying anthropological theories and methods to study and improve healthcare delivery in the UK and abroad. I currently Co-Direct the Rapid Research Evaluation and Appraisal Lab (RREAL) with Dr Ginger Johnson. I work as a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Targeted Intervention, UCL and as a Social Scientist at the NIAA Health Services Research Centre (HSRC), Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA). I am the past director of the Qualitative Health Research Network (QHRN) and a Fellow of the Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA).
