@ylabwales we are conducting research on public service innovation, including working with projects on our Innovate to Save programme https://www.nesta.org.uk/project/innovate-save/

The primary evaluation methodologies I have applied in global health have been cluster randomised trials and stepped wedge trials, always in interdisciplinary teams. I currently work on projects in Wales, Peru, Burkina Faso and India. I lived in Johannesburg for seven years and I have also worked on projects in China, Zimbabwe and Zambia.

I am interested in supervising PhD and Professional Doctorate students in the areas of:

  • public services innovation
  • social innovation
  • smart cities
  • global health
