About me

I am a Senior Lecturer at the Centre for Child Wellbeing and Protection. My research interests are in the areas of children’s rights, child welfare, domestic abuse and research with children.

Before entering academia, I held policy and practice roles in the areas of domestic abuse and child wellbeing.

My current research includes:

Co-Investigator for Nuffield Grant, ‘Children living with domestic violence – understanding the effects on children’s wellbeing using longitudinal data’ (Oct 19 – Oct 22).
