My research interests include the politics of attention and need and the ways and means by which disadvantaged groups can influence the public policy process.
I have a particular interest in public autism policy and my PhD research focuses on how, why and to what effect the integration of the autistic community into public autism policy influences policy output. To this end, I am carrying out a comparative case study of public autism policy in England and Denmark.
I am fluent in French and Italian and have eight years' experience working in Local Authorities in England to support autistic children.
