About me

I am a 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. I have an exceptional track record of research impact. I led the creation of web-based resources for social workers from the ESRC funded Talking and Listening to Children research.

My current research includes:

Principal Investigator for Scottish Government Grant, ‘Children’s Participation in Family Actions: Probing Compliance with Children’s Human Rights’ (Aug 18- Oct 19). This research coincides with and will inform the Scottish Government’s Review of the Children (Scotland) Act 1995.

Principal Investigator for Carnegie Research Incentive Grant, ‘Constructions of children and parents during the reform of family law in Scotland’ (Oct 19 – Sept 20).

Co-Investigator for Nuffield Grant, ‘Children living with domestic violence – understanding the effects on children’s wellbeing using longitudinal data’ (Oct 19 – Oct 21).

Co-Investigator for Respect Grant, ‘Change that Lasts - Perpetrator Response’ (October 18 – March 20).

Co-Investigator for NSPCC Grant, 'The experiences of child victims in the criminal justice system: a qualitative research project' (Dec 18- July 19).
