Lisa is a Research Associate with the Alcohol and Public Health Research team, and is also a part-time PhD student.
The focus of Lisa’s PhD is to evaluate a new integrated drug and alcohol service in County Durham. The evaluation will explore whether the service is successful at increasing the number of people in treatment. It will also look at the wider benefits to local communities, including reducing re-offending, increasing the number of former service users into employment, and working with families to reduce the wider impact on spouses and children.
In addition, Lisa works as a Researcher in Residence at Durham County Council as part of the Alcohol andPublic Health co-production work. This project works alongside Public Healthmembers of staff to work together in evaluating various services andinitiatives, aimed at improving the wider health of County Durham residents.
Previously, Lisa has worked with the CHASE Team and in Rehabilitation Sciences at Teesside University. Lisa has also worked on consultation programmes for public sector organisations since 2002,including for Middlesbrough Borough Council, Cleveland Police Authority, and Hartlepool Borough Council.
Lisa graduated from Sunderland University in 2002 with a BSc in Environmental Studies, and then in 2003 achieved a Post Graduate Certificate in Social Research Methods. In 2005 she completed a Masters of Professional Studies (MProf) at Teesside University,entitled: Using data to support evidence-based practice: a case study of Middlesbrough council.
