A key theme to my research has always been recognising the importance of complexity, context and systemic connections. Working closely with stakeholders has also been important.
My research background has covered a range of subjects including collaboration in health and social welfare, health care, health inequalities, urban infrastructure, sustainable water management, domestic water consumption, obesity, animal disease management and flooding! Common to this research has been exploring the connection between everyday life, social and technical infrastructure and resilience.
Funding bodies have included European Commission, National Research Councils (ESRC and EPSRC), Private Sector Companies, and Local Authorities.
Two projects as Principal Investigator were evaluated as ‘Outstanding’ by the Economic and Social Research Council, one being awarded a prize in the ESRC Celebrating Impact Awards, May 2013.
