She has an MRes in Public Health from the University of Manchester. Her research uses systematic reviewing to revisit and evaluate existing diabetes diagnosis protocols and interventions through a sex lens and the design of sex stratified interventions. Her long-term aim is to develop a sex specific approach to metabolic disease that addresses the significantly poorer outcomes in women.
Previously, Louise worked as an Assistant Headteacher and Special Needs Coordinator in a range of settings, culminating in a whole school project to reduce barriers to learning for all children through effective screening, developmental monitoring, and pedagogical changes to the practice of teaching and support staff
