Amy is a Research Fellow working within the ActEarly Evaluation Theme to evaluate the impact of a system of interventions and initiatives on the health and well-being of children and families in Bradford and Tower Hamlets. Amy’s work involves supporting qualitative evaluations within ActEarly across all the themes and contributing to the meta-evaluation of ActEarly. Amy also plays a key part in the establishment and organisation of the Bradford Centre for Qualitative Research and the Health Foundation funded research project ‘Supporting Young Bradford’.

Within her PhD, Amy explored the usability, acceptability and feasibility of using wearable activity trackers to support child health behaviours. Amy has a keen interest in behaviour change, and has used theoretical frameworks and co-design techniques to develop a family-based intervention – ‘Move & Connect’.
