I am a political scientist researching and teaching in the field of evaluation science and practice. I work at the interface of human, animal and environmental health (One Health) and I seek to understand how complex interventions can be designed, implemented, and evaluated to achieve impact for the health and well being of our planet.
My work on One Health is interdisciplinary and is currently organised around the following 3 projects across 3 Schools at the University of Glasgow:
At MRC/CSO SPHSU, I lead on evaluability assessment on the NIHR-funded PHIRST project to support UK local authorities with evidence-based policymaking & service delivery in public health.
At SBOHVM, I am developing a monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning (MEAL) framework to support the global target of ending human deaths from dog-mediated rabies by 2030. This work is funded by MRC/NEWTON and Wellcome.
At SOE, I am a Co-Investigator on a NERC-funded project (GALLANT) aiming to develop whole-systems solutions for a just and sustainable transition delivered at the city scale in Glasgow.
I am also the Founding Director of Good Evaluation, a social venture supported by Aspect (A SHAPE Platform for Entrepreneurship, Commercialisation and
Grants and Awards listed are those received whilst working with the University of Glasgow.
