Katie -Haighton ,-Northumbria -University -web 

I am an experienced applied health researcher, specialising in public health with an educational background in psychology. I am committed to translational research and work closely with policy and practice partners in the NHS, local and regional government and other public and voluntary organisations to facilitate evidence-informed practice and policy. My research on alcohol screening and brief intervention is nationally and internationally recognised and I have significant methodological expertise in the development (through systematic reviews) and evaluation of complex interventions, using natural experiments, feasibility studies, pilot and full trials. I am also a member of Fuse, the centre for translational research in public health
