I bring together expertise in the organisation of health services with a passion for storytelling, to provide new and dynamic ways of approaching and understanding organisational problems and designing and sharing high-impact research.

My research experience
I have worked on the team developing a new set of Standards for midwifery units in Europe; I have researched the day-to-day experiences of midwives; what makes maternity services successful; how alongside midwife-led birth centres work; new models for antenatal care and women's experiences of both birth and breastfeeding. I have piloted new motion-sensing technologies to try and uncover how birth environments affect clinical practice and I've tested new ways of analysing qualitative stories.
I worked on the Birthplace in England Research Programme; An Organisational Ethnographic Study of Alongside Midwife-led Units and The REACH Pregnancy Programme and with many Universities and NHS Trusts, including City, University of London; King's College London; The University of East London; The University of Nottingham; The University of Oxford and Queen Mary University of London.
