Personal profile


Since 2017 I have been the Project Manager/ Research Associate for NHS at 70 and NHS Voices of Covid-19.

In this role I have managed the creation of the Voices of Our National Health Service oral history collection, one of the largest health-focused collections in the world which is deposited at the British Library.

This collection has been developed through participatory research methods, embedding values based co-production throughout the research process, working with volunteers, stakeholders and partners across the UK. 

I have over 20 years experience working in heritage, community and academic settings. My research expertise is on 20th century and contemporary British history, oral history and the heritage sector.

I am particulary interested in best research practices for participatory and collaborative methods to develop meaningful and impactful research.
