Tanya started her market research career at ORC International in 2014 where she managed employee research projects for public sector organisations such as Ofcom, London South Bank University and University of Portsmouth.

Tanya then moved to Opinion Leader, honing her quantitative and qualitative research skills to work with clients such as the British Heart Foundation, UK National Academies, Museum of London and Transport Focus.

Returning to higher education, Tanya spent a year at SOAS University of London, graduating with an MA in Medical Anthropology. In her thesis, she used ethnographic methods to research the cultural construction of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy.

During a stint as an independent qualitative researcher, Tanya moved to Manchester and continued to work on contracts for government, health and FMCG clients. She specialised in using ethnography, depth interviewing and focus groups, with a particular focus on interviewing children and young people.

Tanya has since joined the public sector team at DJS Research and specialises in health and non-profit research.
