Independent public health researcher, Leeds Beckett University

My research interests include advocacy, corporate communication, health policy and public health. I work closely with the Oral Health Working Group at the WFPHA, publishing work to explore the links between oral and general health. Outside of research, I support companies with social media and business strategy and am an international endurance athlete. I am also the Running Mayor of West Yorkshire and advocate for running to be considered as a form of travel.
