I am a Research Fellow in Built Environment & Healthy Ageing curently working on research projects including understanding of place-based policy and activity in relation to active travel in the aftermath of the Covid-19, the Post-pandemic Equitable and Sustainable Transport project (PEST:pest-project.org). I am also investigating the impact of the home office environment on productivity and work well-being in an ageing workforce and exploring lessons from COVID for the role of the voluntary sector in Integrated Care Systems.

I also support the Brookes Research Innovation and Knowledge Exchange Network on Healthy Ageing and Care.
