My international career in public services has an enduring focus on engagement and translating academic research into societal impact in the healthcare sector. I have worked as an expert advisor with healthcare, financial services, higher education and not-for-profit organisations, specialising in interorganisational collaboration in complex policy contexts.
My research in healthcare organisations has won international recognition, influencing policymakers and regulators in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
