Dr Rowena Hill is a psychologist who works at Nottingham Trent University. Acting as a conduit between the university and external sectors – mainly public sector organisations, she explores opportunities for mutually beneficial research, teaching and knowledge exchange. Rowena has worked extensively with the emergency services during her career and seeks to support them in evidence-based decision making and collaborative research with academia.
Her research portfolio focuses on emergency responders and emergency management, looking to provide insights on the impacts of spillover between work and home environments, and how family structures adapt to protect against this. She sits on many national boards within the blue light sectors and has previously held the role of Trustee for The Fire Fighters Charity. She now holds the position of National Honorary Research Lead for the organisation. Rowena has wide-ranging experience in quality assurance around learning, in both international and UK contexts, including Undergraduate, Postgraduate, Apprenticeships and Continuing Professional Development courses.
