Personal profile

Academic Biography

Sarit is a Research Fellow at the School of Health and Life Sciences, and a member of the Public Health Centre.  She creates, co-ordinates and conducts public health related research and evaluations. 


Sarit enjoys the interdisciplinary elements of public health and as such carries out tailor-made evaluations on a wide range of public health topics – cradle to grave.


Projects include a study on the views of palliative care patients and their carers about the services that they receive; working with mothers-to-be to create a survey on choices in relation to infant feeding (using Participatory Action Research methods). One of Sarit’s latest study (funded by InnovateUK) focuses on the use of AI (Artificial Intelligence) to improve breast MRI, surveying and interviewing radiologists on the acceptability and usability of such a product.


In addition, Sarit worked on a project for the Department of Health exploring different approaches to informing parents and children about the outcome of height and weight measurements which are now undertaken as part of the National Child Measurement Programme and is currently evaluating lifestyle and weight management services across an English county.


Sarit has a strong interest in the impact different communication methods have on learning and behaviour change. She also has a particular interest in how research is translated into practice and communicated to staff, patients, and members of the public. She is a strong advocate for ensuring that information for parents and the community is written plainly and appropriately.


Sarit has previously worked in health development with local SureStart programmes. As part of this post, she was responsible for working with parents on creating health related information as a means of reducing health inequalities.


She has a degree in Health Sciences, an MSc in Evidence-based Public Health, and an MSc in Information Technology.


Sarit is currently undertaking a PhD entitled 'Understanding and implementing policy relating to end-of-life care in England'.
