About me

Will is a Research Assistant within CPEC at LSE. His work has primarily been centred around the Social Care COVID Recovery & Resilience project, with a focus on understanding what interventions have been studied in long-term care during the pandemic. This has developed into work aimed at understanding the psychosocial impacts of some of these interventions, and the effectiveness of vaccines in long-term care homes. 

Will completed an undergraduate degree in Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, and an MSc in Climate Change: Environment, Science and Policy at King’s College London. His postgraduate dissertation focused on ‘The Intersection of Financialisation and Resilience in UK Water Utility Companies’. Related to these studies and their current work at CPEC, Will's interests lie in long-term care, models of ownership, resilience, and the relationship between knowledge and practice. Outside of work he has been involved in campaigns focusing on climate change and social care, which have involved him developing policy and educational resources for potential and elected representatives.
