I've been a member of the European Society for Prevention Research (EUSPR) since 2010 and am currently serving on the Board of the EUSPR as the early-careers lead (until 2017).

Previously I worked as a researcher at the Centre for Public Health at Liverpool John Moores University, UK, where I'm still a Visiting Research Fellow.
