Amy joined CEI with experience in a range of social and applied neuropsychological research areas. She previously worked on a study of mental health outcomes for injured armed services personnel where she gained insights into the opportunities and obstacles presented by large-scale longitudinal research. She then received a Marie-Curie Sklodowska fellowship to work in Germany at an applied research institute on the neurocognitive benefits of speech enhancement technology.
At CEI, Amy has worked on feasibility, pilot, impact, implementation and process evaluations, as well as evidence synthesis, implementation support and exploring options for scale up of successful interventions. Amy leads projects measuring and understanding programme feasibility, fidelity, take-up, and engagement. She works across several delivery contexts including primary and secondary schools, youth organisations, and local government, and has a strong belief in the power of evidence to improve the health and wellbeing of vulnerable children and their families.
