Personal profile

Research interests

I joined the University of Bath in 2012 as a Lecturer in Social Work, having worked for three years as a lecturer in Social Work at the University of the West of England, Bristol before that.  

I qualified as a social worker in 1998 and worked in a wide variety of mental health settings in the statutory and voluntary sectors.  This included work within community mental health teams, assertive outreach teams, drug and alcohol teams and work within forensic mental health settings.

I have several research interests.  These include:

- The views of people with mental health problems on their own mental health care

- The views of carers towards mental health care

- How professionals interpret law and policy

I use perspectives from the sociology of mental health and illness and the sociology of risk and uncertainty to examine these issues.
