I am particularly interested in the role that language plays in social work encounters, with a view to understand how social workers can engage with marginalised linguistic communities. I am also interested in developing new research and pedagogic opportunities for mindfulness in social work.
I am interested in supervising PhD students in the following topic areas: children in the generational order, child and family social work, child language brokering; intercultural communication in public services.
