Those two posts reflect her academic background and research interests very well. She was previously based in the Department of Sociology at the University of Surrey and has also been a visiting lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire, Kingston University and the University of Aarhus, Denmark. Earlier in her career she worked for the Department of Health, the Health Education Authority and for various district health authorities on aspects of service planning.
