My contribution to practice is equally important to me as my contribution on research. I am an experienced NHS senior manager. During my management career I became increasingly conscious of the gap between the worlds of research and practice, and in 2011 I made the conscious decision to equip myself to bridge this gap by training to be a researcher through the PhD process.

Having completed my PhD my plan for the next phase of my career is to act as a boundary spanner, facilitating the connection between the two worlds. I realise this means that I will forego personal ambition in either world, but am instead ambitious for the connections I can make and the contribution I can make as a researcher that understands both worlds.

Current Research Activities
My research interest is in the field of organisational studies and sociology of the professions. I am interested in how knowledge about organisations is made available for people to use in operational services. Specifically I locate my research in the area of how networks make sense of new rules. My doctoral research entitled How General Medical Practitioners Make Sense of Their Commissioning Role in the English National Health Service and Why It Matters was theorised by considering field change through the interrelationship of rules, networks, and cognitive frames, and was based on data collected as a participant observer and from interviews. I am writing two papers from this thesis for the journals Organisational Studies, and the British Journal of General Practice.
