Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests lie in the processes of recovery and perceived stigma from substance misuse. Specifically, I am interested in understanding these processes from a service user and provider perspective, and how these shape treatment philosophies and drug policies. As part of my PhD project, I explore service users' lived experiences of repeated relapse from their recovery back into substance misuse. I draw from recovery-informed theory (RIT) and qualitative research methodologies, such as Interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA), to examine these issues.

My research is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Society for the Study of Addiction (SSA).
