About me

My background begins with welfare rights and advice within the social care sector, prior to returning to Stirling University to complete BA (Hons) Sociology and Social Policy (1st Class), MSc Applied Social Research (with distinction) and PhD. I have a strong interest in welfare, health and wellbeing, social justice and human rights. My current focus explores the experiences of people living with dementia and cancer and related education, training and social support needs. The right to live well underpins current research and practice initiatives. I link to the strategic University theme of Living Well. This requires theoretical and conceptual work alongside a continued key focus on the development of professional practice and on understanding the lives and experiences of living with dementia and cancer.
