Full Profile

By training a social scientist and qualitative researcher, Steve has taught and researched in a number of areas, before finding myself drawn into Public Health. He has conducted qualitative social research in a number of different settings, from education development projects in Cambodia to local democracy in Burnley, but has more recently developed a specific interest in the politics of health and social policy formulation and implementation. He was previously Lecturer in the Department of Public Health and Policy at the University of Liverpool, where he was also Director of Studies for the Online Masters in Public Health. Whilst at Liverpool, he was involved in a number of public health research projects including comparative studies of the impacts of active labour market policies aimed at people with long-term illnesses and disabilities, a scoping study on the impacts of public spending on health inequalities and a systematic review examining the impacts of crime and fear of crime on health outcomes.
