Director, Collaborate Research


My research primarily supports organisations to develop policy, services and campaigns. I have a collaborative working style and specialist skills in researching hard to reach audiences and applying behavioural sciences to research.


As founder of Collaborate Research, I lead all of our projects and work with a network of trusted senior associates and specialist suppliers to deliver larger assignments. Collaborate delivers full service projects as well as support in specific areas. Our services include:

  • Qualitative research of all types
  • Deliberative workshops and citizens' juries
  • Consumer and stakeholder surveys
  • Secondary research (e.g. rapid evidence assessments)
  • Mixed method research (e.g. qual/quant projects)
  • Report writing to publishable standards
  • Project management and consultancy support
  • Training and capacity building

Our client list includes market regulators as well as national charities, think tanks and campaigning organisations.


As a true multi-method researcher I am equally comfortable using qualitative, quantitative and deliberative methods. I am a certified member of the MRS and have been a research practitioner for more than 25 years.

Prior to founding Collaborate Research in 2012, I worked at a senior level for a number of leading research agencies.  During my career I have engaged with a wide range of clients, sectors, issues and research audiences, so I am able to turn my hand to pretty much any research assignment.

Currently, my research primarily supports government, regulators and charities to develop policy, services and campaigns.  I work across a range of sectors with a particular emphasis on financial services, energy, health and social care, work and welfare.

I have specialist skills in the following areas:

  • Mixed methods research
  • Engaging hard to reach and vulnerable audiences
  • Applying behavioural sciences to research
  • Writing research reports for publication
