Brief Description of WorkMy research interest is in understanding how values influence decision-making and practice, especially in relation to evidence use and innovation within health and social care service ecologies. My doctoral thesis was concerned with how homeless service providers’ values influence the recovery trajectories of homeless service users. After that, I worked as a Research Fellow on an NIHR funded project entitled “Improving the capabilities of NHS organisations to use evidence: a qualitative study of redesign projects in Clinical Commissioning Groups”. I am currently working on H2020 funded program research “Homelessness as Unfairness”. My current project is concerned with responses to homelessness across ecological levels within 8 European cities.
