Mavis is a Senior Researcher at the Ada Lovelace Institute, focusing on projects at the intersection of data-driven systems and digital technologies and their wider health and social impacts.
Mavis obtained her PhD in Health Studies from King’s College London and is a midwife by background. These help her combine broad clinical, theoretical and practical knowledge and insights of ethical and societal implications of practices, governance and uses of health and genomics data in care and research. Mavis is interested in issues of inequalities and power dynamics that impact people’s experiences of health and care; and considers ways to ensure marginalised voices are heard.
