Rebecca currently works on the Wellcome Trust funded Wellbeing Investments in Schools and Employers (WISE) study led by Prof Hareth Al-Janabi. The WISE programme of work seeks to establish how schools and workplaces invest resources in mental wellbeing. This includes how money, time, and space are allocated to wellbeing interventions, staffing, culture, and infrastructure. The study will generate models of decision-making processes, establish how schools and workplaces can be best supported to make equitable and efficient decisions, and develop new research methods for studying investment decisions in organisations.
Rebecca is Co-I on a nationally collaborative ESRC-funded EXploring Innovation in Transition (EXIT) Study, looking at innovations in social care transitions for those leaving care. The study aims to support the development, implementation and diffusion of meaningful innovation for care leavers. This four-year project involves partners in Warwick Business School, Newcastle, Bedfordshire, Birmingham, and Monash Universities as well as the Care Leavers’ Association.
