Biography

Karen joined the Public Health Institute (PHI) in 2006, and has worked with various monitoring and surveillance systems. When she began her public health career at PHI she joined the Criminal Justice Team as a Data Administrator for the Drug Interventions Programme (DIP). In 2009, Karen became a Prisons Data Quality Analyst for the team before spending a brief period of time with the North West Public Health Observatory. Karen returned to working with prisons’ data and had a leading role in the implementation of the National Drug Treatment Monitoring System (NDTMS) in prisons.

When the NDTMS team moved over to Public Health England in 2013, Karen chose to stay with PHI and joined the Trauma and Injury Intelligence Group (TIIG) as a Public Health Researcher/Analyst. In 2014 she became the TIIG Project Lead, managing the intentional and unintentional injury data collected routinely via the TIIG monitoring system.

In 2016 when Karen returned to work following maternity leave, she became the Criminal Justice Project Lead, responsible for the monitoring of DIP (where it is still in existence) and the criminal justice interventions delivered to drug using offenders across Merseyside. As part of an integrated Intelligence and Surveillance Team, Karen continues to be involved with the TIIG project.

Karen recently graduated with a distinction in MSc Public Health with PHI, and is currently writing a paper for publication on the work produced for the dissertation module (exploring the characteristics of child injury ambulance call-outs in the North West of England and identifying the utility of ambulance records in injury surveillance).
