Profile

Biography

I am most interested in undertaking research that helps to identify what works in real world contexts. This includes conducting randomised controlled trials (RCTs) of new policies and practices as well as undertaking research with existing data. I am also interested in research that helps to understand what the full range of impacts of activities are, for example trying to assess both the social and economic impacts of interventions.
