Daisy is passionate about creative and participatory approaches to research which share power, tackle inequalities and form ongoing and reciprocal relationships with people and communities.
Daisy works across the IU portfolio, with a particular focus on children & young people’s mental health. Her most recent work has included participatory research into the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on the emotional wellbeing of young people in Lambeth, and a co-design sprint to shape Tameside & Glossop’s Children and Young People’s Emotional and Mental Wellbeing Community Offer. She is currently supporting the community mental health transformation in Greater Manchester, to share learning, develop their strategic vision, and prototype with sites.
Prior to joining IU, Daisy worked in schools across China to design and implement courses in research and critical thinking. Daisy has a background in Social Anthropology and has conducted ethnography exploring LGBTQ+ community spaces and organising.
