Commissioning Editor, Policy Press

I am a Commissioning Editor at Policy Press, an imprint of Bristol University Press. I have worked at Policy Press for nine years starting as a graduate in Sociology from Birmingham City University. I have had several roles in the commissioning team on the majority of the core Policy Press subject areas over the years. I currently commission books across several subject areas including Health & Social Care, Social & Public Policy and Ageing & Gerontology.

In my role at Policy Press I enjoy meeting existing and potential authors and talking through their research. Building those relationships over the period of time from inception of a potential book idea to publication is especially enjoyable. I find being able to produce books that authors and editors are proud of very rewarding.
