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 Carnegie Research Incentive Grant, ‘Constructions of children and parents during the reform of family law in Scotland’ (Feb 20 – Jan 21).

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

Co-Investigator for ESRC Grant, 'Children and Families Affected by Domestic Abuse: Innovation in Social Care' (Sep 19 - Aug 23)

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

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

Principal Investigator for Scottish Government Grant, ‘Children’s Participation in Family Actions: Probing Compliance with Children’s Human Rights’ (Aug 18- Feb 20). This research coincides with and will inform the Scottish Government’s Review of the Children (Scotland) Act 1995.
