Rose Lasko-Skinner


I joined Reform as a Research Assistant in February 2018 hoping to get in the thick of it with the UK’s policy debate. Since then I have had the opportunity to work across a variety of areas of public service reform, from healthcare data to commissioning services. I am particularly interested in issues around welfare and social justice.  

Before joining the team at Reform, I interned at Demos where I worked on various policy issues including political communication and the rise of populism. I have also been a research fellow in the Global Health Department at King’s College University of London where I researched interdisciplinary approaches to dealing with trauma.

Outside of research, I enjoy visiting art galleries and attending life drawing classes. I am also a fan of outdoor swimming. 

My favourite Reformer is... William Beveridge for being the architect of the welfare state
