Biography

I am the scientific research manager for an EU funded international research project focusing on the transition of care from child to adult mental health services. The MILESTONE project contains nine interlinked work packages and involves 12 partners from eight European countries and will run from 2014 to 2019. I am also the study coordinator for the MILESTONE study, a cohort study with a nested cluster randomised controlled trial. I have held research posts at a number of internationally renowned research institutions in the UK and abroad. My research experience is very broad and encompasses studies linked with intervention development, conduct and evaluation in health services and community settings, ethnic minorities, preconception health, food and nutrition, visual impairment and cancer.
