I joined Lincoln International Business School in September 2014 as Project Coordinator for an Onlincolnshire programme funded through the ERDF and since then have worked on a variety of research projects both in the Business School and Health and Social Care. My research focuses on issues around the provision of services to businesses and communities, primarily in rural areas. This has included developing business-university collaborations with a focus on digital technology and conducting evaluations of community based NHS services. I am currently undertaking the role of the Business School’s Impact Officer assisting academics in creating and identifying non-academic impact from their research work.
I previously worked as Principal Research Officer for the Economic Regeneration arm of Lincolnshire County Council where I managed and conducted research on a range of socio-economic issues. Prior to my involvement in economic development I completed a PhD and was a Research Associate at the University of Cambridge examining the impact of house design on House Dust Mite populations (published as Jane Horwood).
