Head of Research, Cerebra
Tracy has been with Cerebra since 2010. Before Cerebra she spent six years working as a Regional Consultant for Home-Start UK.
Prior to that she was a senior lecturer at UWIC Business School where she spent eight years teaching and supervising student research. Her professional background combining family support, voluntary sector management and academia has been incredibly beneficial to her role at Cerebra. In addition she has a daughter with Asperger’s Syndrome so experiences first-hand the day to day exchanges with service providers, attempts to gain access to suitable interventions and the drive to promote understanding of difference so her daughter can live her life to her full potential. She believes strongly in the benefits of research, believing that through innovative and applied research at world class universities, advances in understanding are made. For Tracy, the challenge remains to translate that understanding into policy and practice and improve lives.
