I am currently a Carlsberg Foundation Visiting Fellow at the Department of Social Policy and Intervention. I am interested in the outsourcing of social care services, particularly in terms of how this influences quality and regulatory outcomes among social care providers. I am also interested in systematic review and other research synthesis methods.
