About Sarah

Sarah leads the Health Inequalities research theme for the NIHR School for Public Health Research.

Sarah’s work lies at the intersection of sociology, social policy and public health, with the aim of understanding and addressing the social and political determinants of health and wellbeing. Her work has particularly focused on health inequalities linked to migration, ethnicity and gender, and the processes of identification and in/exclusion operating at policy, practice and community levels that shape health-related experiences and outcomes. Her work also includes a focus on understanding the perspectives of service users and improving the fit between provision/initiatives and needs within complex systems.

A parallel body of work explores the ethics and science of researching race/ethnicity and health. Projects have focused on a range of health topics, particularly reproductive health. Much of Sarah’s work involves close collaboration with statutory and third sector organisations, as well as partnerships with community-based groups and local people.
