Alec has an MA in Public Policy and a PhD in Management both from King’s College London, UK where he now works as a Lecturer in Government & Business at King’s Business School.
He has two main research interests. Firstly, the use of evidence in policy making and practice across the public sector with a particular focus on health and social care. He co-edited What Works Now? Evidence-informed policy and practice published in 2019 by Policy Press which provides a contemporary overview of these issues.
His second research interest is the use of innovative financing mechanisms as part of public sector reform processes. He has extensively researched the emergence and development of Social Impact Bonds within the UK and across a selection of other European countries.
He previously spent five years at the Policy Innovation Research Unit at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine conducting research commissioned by the UK Department of Health and Social Care. Prior to entering academia, he worked in National Health Service administration and management.
