Personal profile

Biography

Associate Director at the Scottish Improvement Science Collaborating Centre (SISCC) with strategic and operational responsibility for all research and evaluation programmes of work. I work collaboratively with a wide range of people and agencies (including the Scottish government, NHS boards, improvement agencies, academics, the third sector, practitioners and service users) to develop the evidence base around improvement research and to facilitate the mobilisation of knowledge and evidence into improvement activity, practice and policy.

Qualified project manager (PRINCE2 practitioner) with experience developing, managing and leading complex projects across multiple sites and of working collaboratively in multi-disciplinary teams.

 

Research interests

Experienced researcher with expertise in the practical application of quantitative and qualitative research methodologies, particularly those relevant to the health services.  Research strengths include the application of quantitative and qualitative research methodologies across different diseases and contexts. I have an interest in the development of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMS) and Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMS).

My research is primarily focussed on improvement research, implementation science and applied health services research, particularly related to enhancing the evidence base for improvements in health and social care.
