I have worked in Public Health at the University of Manchester since 2006 and been a Lecturer in Health Care Sciences since 2018. 

My interest in public health goes back to previous work in human rights observation, community health and drug and alcohol counselling.  Alongside my public health work, I have maintained my practice as a contemporary artist, and have valued to opportunity of exploring the connection between the two fields in my teaching and research.
