I joined Reform as a Research Assistant in February 2017 and became a Researcher in July 2017. I have a particular interest in healthcare policy and I am currently writing on a report about the future NHS workforce. I am also working on a project looking at the design for a new commissioning framework and have recently published a paper on modern technology improving efficiency at the UK border.
Before joining Reform, I worked as a management consultant for a global consulting company, specialising in productivity improvements in healthcare providers. I hope to use and apply my knowledge from on-the-ground experience in the NHS to my research. I know first-hand the change that needs to happen in this public service and I am excited to have the opportunity to impact some of this change through my policy research.
I am somewhat of a fitness fanatic. Away from work you will normally find me at the gym, out for a run or on my road bike. I also enjoy fundraising and working for charities. Last year I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of the health research charity Wellbeing of Women and I work as a business mentor for students from underprivileged backgrounds.
What makes me get out of bed in the morning?
Probably like most people, the thought of eating breakfast. I also do look forward to going for a morning run when the sun is shining!
