Biography

Shona is a Professor of Public Health Policy and the Deputy Director of the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit at the prestigious University of Glasgow. With a career spanning over 20 years, she has established herself as an academic leader in the field of social and public health policy. Shona's expertise lies in harnessing the power of partnership working to enhance the impact of policy research in addressing health disparities.

Collaborating closely with a diverse range of stakeholders from the public, policy, and practice sectors, Shona actively engages in co-creating projects that generate actionable evidence for policy. Her extensive publication portfolio includes over 120 scientific papers and several book chapters. Her most recent chapter focuses on the influence of commercial industries on public policy discourse and how they contribute to the escalating burden of non-communicable diseases. By identifying upstream drivers areas where action can effectively reduce the downstream effects of health inequalities, Shona's work is dedicated to fostering a fairer, more inclusive, and sustainable society where all citizens can thrive.

Currently, Shona's work is with local policy makers as part of a Glasgow Health Determinants Research Collaboration (GHDRC) grant. The £5.3m award by the National Institute for Health and Care Research is a collaboration made up of Glasgow City Council (GCC), Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS and the University of Glasgow. The six-year funding (2024-2030) aims to embed a culture of evidence-informed decision-making across all areas of policy and practice that have an influence on health inequalities and outcomes. Shona is also working closely with the United Government of Tanzania and Multi-sectoral Coordinating Committee on AMR to translate research into policy and practice impact from her £3.3m MRC funded project SNAP-AMR.  This work has informed the Tanzanian National Action Plan on anti-microbial resistance (2023–28). 

Throughout her career, Shona has made significant contributions to public health research. Notable achievements include:

  • contributing evidence on the harms of SHS in the evaluating the implementation of Scottish smoke-free legislation in enclosed public places (2006)
  • providing evidence supporting the Smoking Prohibition (Children in Motor Vehicles) (Scotland) Act 2016, 
  • contributing to the evidence base for Minimum Unit Pricing for Alcohol in Scotland, implemented 2018, and 
  • providing evidence in support of the Soft Drinks Industry Levy, implemented 2018.

Other current research includes ESRC-funded project, Glasgow Aligning Local Policy Partnerships (GALoPP) which aims to align major economic investments with skills and communities across Glasgow City Region; a CRUK-funded co-production  project with young people highlighting the harms of online social media marketing of e-cigarettes to youths and children, and research supporting UK legislation to restrict the marketing of discretionary foods high in fat, sugar, or salt.

Shona's influence and involvement extend beyond academia. She serves on several Editorial Boards, holding positions such as the European Editor of the International Journal of Qualitative Methods, Associate Editor for PLoS One, and Associate Editor for BMC Public Health. Furthermore, she is an esteemed member of the Scottish Parliament Cross Party Group 'Improving Scotland's Health:2021 and beyond' and regularly participates as a panel member for various grant funders. Committed to knowledge exchange, Shona actively engages across sectors and with local, national and global organisations and sits as Chair of the Scottish Obesity Alliance. Within her Chair role her current focus lies in influencing the Restricting Food Promotions Bill and implementing measures to safeguard children from the detrimental impacts of unhealthy food and drinks marketing across Scotland.

For those interested in potential research collaborations, Shona welcomes discussions and encourages reaching out to her directly. Her recent research awards and comprehensive publication history provide further insight into her work and areas of expertise.
