Following a first career in community nursing Louise has worked in health and social care research since 2003 and was awarded a PhD in primary care and population sciences in 2009 with her thesis 'A mixed methods study to explore interagency working to support the health of people who are homeless'. Her research interests are homelessness and social exclusion; delivery of health care to people who are homeless; interprofessional and interagency working; and new models and roles in delivering health and social care.

Previous work (with SCWRU) includes the ESRC funded study: Rethinking multiple exclusion homelessness: implications for workforce development and interprofessional practice, the School of Social Care Research funded study Rebuilding Lives: supporting formerly homeless people to achieve independent living and an NIHR funded study investigating service provision for older people who are homeless and have memory problems.

Louise is currently a co-investigator on the NIHR HS&DR funded study: Delivering primary health care to homeless people: an evaluation of the integration, effectiveness and costs of different models (HEARTH study).
