My research interests are: child safeguarding; child protection; social work with children and families; domestic violence and abuse; and parental substance misuse.

My PhD (awarded 2018) explored the factors associated with social care outcomes for children living with parental substance misuse in England. The study was a retrospective longitudinal case note study and used bivariate and multivariate statistical analysis, including cluster analysis, to explore children's outcomes and factors associated with them.  

I am currently a Research Associate on the ReProvide programme (Workstream I IRIS+). IRIS+ is a training and support intervention for general practice to improve the response to children exposed to domestic violence and abuse (DVA) and men and women experiencing or perpetrating DVA


Prior to starting my PhD, I worked as a children and families social worker. I am a registered social worker and continue to work as an independent off-site practice educator (supervisor) for social work students on placement. 


I teach on BSc Childhood Studies and MSc Social Work degree courses. I am also a tutor on the MSc Social Work degree course.
