Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests scan the life course of people with learning disabilities and people with mental health issues, from early transitions to death and bereavement.  The primary focus of my research has been to further advance the social inclusion of vulnerable adults through social networks and social support. As a qualified Barrister, I am also interested in legal issues in relation to vulnerable groups.
