About

I am an Associate Professor and have been Head of the Department of Public Health, Policy, and Social Sciences since 2011. 
I was Programme Director for the Department’s MSc Health Care Management, and taught that MSc in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Mauritius, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore. I have supervised many MSc students, and more than ten PhD students through to completion.

I studied part-time for both my BA (Open) and my PhD in Social Policy and Administration (Kent). My research focus has been on relations of power within health and social care providers. I have been involved in promoting and enabling good practice in patient involvement in health and social care research. I am an experienced qualitative researcher familiar with a variety of empirical methods: interviews, focus groups, non-participant observation, and documentary analysis. 

I previously held University posts at Plymouth, Huddersfield, Manchester, & Brighton.
