Dr Michelle Cornes, BA (Hons), PhD
Senior Research Fellow
Professional background and areas of interest
My research interests centre around the health and social care workforce and its intersection with housing and homelessness. I recently led a study on interprofessional working (‘communities of practice’) which formed part of the ESRC’s ground-breaking ‘Multiple Exclusion Homelessness Research Programme’. My current major project is an NIHR funded mixed methods study on hospital discharge arrangements for homeless people.
I am Associate Editor of the Journal of Interprofessional Care, a Board Member of the Journal of Integrated Care, Fellow of the NIHR, Honorary Fellow of the University of Cumbria and Honorary Senior Research Associate at the Farr Institute of Health Informatics, University College London.
Prior to joining the Unit in 2006, I worked as an Intermediate Care Programme Manager in the voluntary sector. I have a PhD in Social Anthropology from the University of Manchester. My main role within the Unit, is to co-ordinate the Unit’s Service User and Carer Advisory Group.
