Brief biographical details

I have held senior appointments in Public Health within both the NHS and Local Authorities. I am a Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health (FFPH) and on the United Kingdom Public Health Register. I have been appointed an Honorary Senior Lecturer in Health Sciences in the University of Leicester. Having been puzzled by the varied reaction to them I am looking at the impact of e-cigarettes and alternative nicotine delivery systems (ANDS) on relationships between consumers, public health interests and industry interests. I began my PhD in 2017.

Research interests

My research study – titled Innovation, controversy and social change: a study of the impact of e-cigarettes and alternative nicotine delivery systems (ANDS) - focusses on the perception of the phenomenon of e-cigarettes, and accompanying controversy, by actors and networks assembled around tobacco and nicotine, broadly as consumers, producers and policy developers or 'influencers', from about 2006, when a functioning e-cigarette was first put on the UK market.  The research question is: How have the networks of relationships between public health groups, industry groups, consumer groups become reconfigured with the emergence of e-cigarettes and alternative nicotine delivery systems (ANDS)? The study will seek to capture actors understanding of the innovation and the events that followed it, their sources of knowledge of them and what this has meant for their engagement with tobacco and e-cigarettes.
