Bryony is Senior Fellow within the NIHR SSCR, as well as leading on a study evaluating hearing dogs.

Bryony joined the Social Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at the University of York in 1991. Since then she has led numerous projects, employing a wide range of research designs and methods. Much of her earlier work concerned children, young people and young adults with long-term or life-limiting conditions or impairments. More recently, whilst retaining an expertise and close interest in this group, her portfolio of work has expanded to include other populations including adults with autism, and frail older people. She also has long-standing interests in parent-directed interventions to manage sleep and behaviour difficulties, and work-related stress in the health and social care workforce. Bryony was appointed Co-Director of SPRU in February 2016.
