My main research and knowledge exchange activities involve substance use and addictions; social inequalities; domestic abuse; the role of social activism and social movements in health and social care; user/survivor peer leadership in mental health and substance use services and spirituality and integrative approaches in health/health care.

My main methodological interests are participatory, action and qualitative research methods, evaluation of service and professional interventions, and undertaking collaborative research with marginalised groups.

I have taught under- and post-graduate courses on qualitative and participatory research methodologies since 1997.
