Personal profile

Research interests

My research in child trafficking and modern slavery is a crosscutting social issue, relevant to policy areas of child protection, child migration, criminal justice, immigration, social policy and human rights. My research engages with how children experience contemporary childhood and adolescence in a globalised world and considers the cross-national contexts of separated children, migrating across borders.

My research interests lie in qualitative and child-focused research exploring children’s worlds, child protection and children’s rights. I have an interest in developing increased participation of children in social work research and practice.

Willing to supervise doctoral students

A wide range of projects that explore child abuse, child protection and child welfare. Topics may include child abuse and trauma, exploitation, trafficking, migration and modern slavery.
