Biography

I am a researcher and lecturer in adult social care. My research areas are: older men's experiences of loneliness and social isolation; sexuality, care and ageing; trans ageing and gender identity; inclusive care provision for diverse groups of older people; equality measures in organisations, and; LGBTQ youth health and wellbeing. I welcome proposals for postgraduate research (PhD/ Masters) in any of the above areas.

I qualified as a social worker in Tasmania (Australia) in 2002 and my former practice experience includes school social work with children and adolescents (statutory role) and counselling and community work with sexual and gender minority groups (voluntary agency). In February 2009, I took up a lecturer post in social work with Swansea University after providing sessional teaching in both sociology and social work programmes at the University of Tasmania for 4 years. I joined the School for Policy Studies beginning of 2016.
