Louise Mc Grath-Lone

Research Officer

Louise is currently working on the quantitative strand of the Nuffield Foundation funded study ‘Educational Attainment and Progress of Children in Need and Children in Care’ which is analysing national social care and education data. She is also working on the evaluation of the Mockingbird Family Model of foster care for the Department for Education’s Children’s Social Care Innovation Programme.

Louise is a public health researcher with an interest in using big data to explore inequalities and outcomes for disadvantaged populations. For her PhD, she used administrative social care data to characterise the longitudinal care histories of looked after children in England. In her previous work, she has used routinely-collected data to describe the sexual health of sex workers and to identify inequalities among cancer patients in access to research trials.
