A market researcher and medical anthropologist. My background is in understanding the social, psychological and environmental contexts driving human behaviour.

With my people-centered approach, I have helped clients in the healthcare, pharmaceutical, not-for-profit and charities and government sectors to develop products and services.

I have explored perceptions of the care sector amongst social care providers, which guided the development of content for an advertising campaign.

I'm currently helping a client to understand medication-compliance behaviours amongst patients, this will inform pharmaceutical messaging around a new medication.
