Claire is a Research and Impact Manager at Zinc VC.  Her main role is supporting Zinc’s portfolio companies in planning and evaluating the impact and effectiveness of their products, as well as overseeing Zinc’s PhD Internship and Postdoctoral Fellowship programmes.

Claire is passionate about multidisciplinary approaches to solving problems. Her PhD in Public health & Human Computer Interaction explored how we can increase the efficiency and usefulness of digital health product evaluations – focusing on trial methods that are feasible at the earliest stages of product development and allow evidence-based optimization.  Following this, Claire’s postdoctoral work at Northumbria University involved designing, developing and evaluating a chronic condition self-management app. She completed a lectureship in the Engineering department at Bristol University, before joining Zinc.
