Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are in the area of child welfare and child protection. These interests stem from my experiences working as a social worker in local authority family placement teams. I have a particular interest in the ways that children and young people in public care, are looked after by the state.

  • The social networks of children looked after
  • Unaccompanied asylum seeking young people's experiences of foster care
  • The experiences of sibling groups living in public care
  • Community Based Participatory Research
  • Public engagement and social work
  • Global responses to child welfare

Willing to supervise PhD

A wide range of projects that explore child protection and child welfare. For example, projects that might focus on:-

  • Foster care and adoption
  • Unaccompanied asylum seeking children and young people
  • Siblings experiences of public care
  • Life story work
