Biography

Prior to joining academia, Sarah worked as a Board Director in the NHS and has had a varied career working in consultancy, managerial and scientific roles, across healthcare and not for profit sectors. She continues to practice strategy and management as a Non-Executive Director at a social housing and care provider.
