Research fellow, University of Leeds

My research interests include public health and policy, public engagement in research, sustainability and active travel. I have worked with several universities across all of these topics. As well as my main academic role, I am also the Director of Bridge Research, a small research consultancy primarily supporting social enterprises, charities and academic organisations.
