My research interests include adoption, fostering and migration, and in particular understanding the long-term impact of childhood experiences. I've worked primarily on mixed methods studies, using a range of methodological approaches.
Having worked in the voluntary sector for 15 years, I view research dissemination and knowledge exchange as an on-going process. I'm interested in the writing process and learning from non-academic writing (such as narrative non-fiction) to ensure that research reaches, and can be used by, a wide range of audiences.
