  • health policy and management
  • gender equity and diversity
  • research impact assessment

Gender equity and diversity are becoming particularly important aspects of my work. I am leading a multi-disciplinary programme of research and policy advocacy across medical and social sciences. This includes building an evidence base to accelerate women's advancement and leadership through systematic reviews; developing markers of achievement, metrics, and indicators for assessing and monitoring gender equity; conducting multi-centre cross-country comparisons of the gender leadership gap in academic health centres; examining the gender dimension of responsible research and innovation; exploring ways of creating a more supportive and inclusive university culture, and examining women's and men's perceptions of the role the Athena SWAN Charter and its impact.

As part of the International School on Research Impact Assessment, I have contributed to the development of international guidelines on research impact assessment. My colleagues and I have demonstrated how gender equity could maximise scientific, societal and economic returns on investment in research. We have developed recommendations on how to include and strengthen analysis of gender equity in research impact assessment and issued a global call for action:

My current health policy and management work focuses on the cross-cutting theme 'Partnerships for Health, Wealth and Innovation' of the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Centre using theoretical models from innovation studies (triple helix of university-industry-government relations), sociology of science (Mode 2 knowledge production), and management studies (value co-creation).   Working with senior academic and clinical leaders at the interface between universities and teaching hospitals, I conduct research and policy projects to better understand how this interface works and suggest strategies to optimise its performance and impact. My past work has informed the creation of an Academic Health Science Centre in Oxford, Health Innovation and Education Cluster in Thames Valley, and an Academic Health Science Network in south central England.

Prior to my current role, I completed a DPhil in Social Policy at the University of Oxford looking at the politics of health care reform in Central and Eastern Europe; an MSc in Social Work and Social Administration at the Moscow School of Social and Economic Sciences specialising in social administration; a Postgraduate Diploma in Diplomacy at the Mediterranean Academy of Diplomatic Studies, University of Malta, with a dissertation on public diplomacy; and a Higher Education Diploma (BA) in Economics at the Belarus State Economic University in my native Minsk. I also held visiting fellowships at the Centre for Policy Studies in Budapest and Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne.

Read my article on Advancing gender equality through the Athena SWAN Charter for Women in Science nominated by Editors-in-Chief across Springer Nature as one that could help humanity and protect and preserve our planet.
