About me

Amy joined UWE in May 2013 as a Research Officer in the Faculty of Business and Law, working on a range of research projects within Bristol Social Marketing Centre (later Bristol Centre for Leadership and Change). These included evaluations of initiatives such as the Golden Key programme (a citywide intervention for adults with multiple complex needs), and patient and public involvement group The Healthcare Change Makers. She also worked on various other projects focusing on social prescribing, behaviour change and youth homelessness.

Amy completed her MSc in Public Health at UWE in January 2018 and subsequently moved to the Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences where she worked for three years as a Research Associate and later Research Fellow. She is now a Senior Lecturer in Public Health and Programme Lead for the MSc Public Health. She also teaches on the BSc Apprenticeship in Public Health and the Specialist Community Public Health Nursing programmes, specifically on the Qualitative Health Research, Introduction to Global Public Health, Principles of Evidence Based Public Health and Health Promotion modules. She also supervises Masters dissertation students and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and recently gained her PGCert in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

Amy continues to be an active researcher and her interests here include community development, social justice, health promotion, public health evaluation, and health and wellbeing at different stages of the life course. She is currently studing for a DPhil by publication which explores the contribution that Community Development initiatives can make to social connectedness.
