Emily is a Post-Doctoral Researcher based in the School of Public Health. She recently completed a four-year scholarship on the prestigious Health Research Board PhD Scholars Programme in Population Health and Health Services Research (SPHeRE). Her PhD involved a mixed-methods evaluation of the implementation of a national childhood weight management programme delivered in two community sites, in Ireland. This research allowed her to explore programme implementation and uptake from a broad range of stakeholder perspectives and offered her the opportunity to work and collaborate with various local, national and international research institutions, community organisations, health professionals and policy makers. Prior to SPHeRE, Emily was employed as a research fellow with safefood, during which, she was involved in compiling the evidence base to support their national obesity campaigns and resources.
