Dr Annie Williams 

Career Profile

Annie has recently been working as part of public health and social work teams evaluating the impact of complex interventions addressing drugs and alcohol misuse. Annie also does a small amount of teaching on substance misuse and health improvement. Her areas of interest include people’s motivation and triggers for substance misuse and the impact of different level interventions on use, especially on the use of disadvantaged individuals and groups. Annie's PhD explored the impact of a social policy family initiative on the wellbeing and development of parents and children in an area of deprivation. Annie's early career saw her working as a dental surgeon, gaining experience as a partner in a General Practice and in the hospital environment. An interest in patient behaviour led her to leave dentistry for further academic study and her present work.
