I joined the University of Stirling in 2007, having previously worked at the universities of Manchester, Birmingham and Kent. I have carried out funded research for the ESRC, NIHR, Scottish Government, the Department of Health, the Big Lottery and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. My current research interests are around citizenship, disability and gender. I also carry out research on comparative social care policy, women's politicisation, health and social care, ageing and dementia and governance.
I teach research design and social policy, particularly around disability and gender.
My research skills are primarily mixed methods, with particular expertise in programme evaluation and co-production.
I welcome PhD applications in any area of my research expertise.
