Staff Profile

Dr Kristin Liabo

Senior Research Fellow

Kath Maguire

I am a member of the PenCLAHRC Patient and Public Involvement Team. This team works to support and encourage members of the public to participate in various aspects of PenCLAHRC’s research, not just as data providers but in the prioritisation, planning and conduct of studies.
I have a background in childhood studies and systematic reviewing. After I worked on a study on research implementation I became interested in comparing the research priorities of researchers with those of the wider public, prompting the question ‘who decides what we should know?’ My subsequent PhD research focused on the barriers and facilitators to involving young people in systematic reviewing, with an emphasis on their involvement in setting the review question and influencing all decisions on the review protocol.
