Personal profile

Academic Biography

Llinos is a Research Associate with AskFuse, the rapid response and evaluation service of Fuse, the Centre for Translational Research in Public Health.  Fuse supports collaborative projects between academics and policy and practice partners in the North East of England and beyond.

Llinos was awarded her PhD in Sociology & Social Policy by Bangor University in July 2015. Her thesis considered the involvement of lay people in the development and delivery of the Strategy for Older People in Wales: asking why some people become involved, why others choose not to and why some are unable to have their voice heard. Llinos has held research posts at University of Birmingham, Durham University Centre for Public Policy & Health, and Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen.

Throughout her career, Llinos’s work has focused on collaborative working and on ensuring that ordinary people are involved in the decisions which affect their lives. Before returning to academia, Llinos spent much of her career within the public, voluntary and community sectors working as a senior manager and consultant. She obtained an MPhil from Cardiff Business School in 1990, researching statutory-voluntary sector coordination of services for adults with disabilities. Llinos has also been a Trustee for registered charities supporting refugees and asylum seekers, children & young people and community arts.
