Research Output per year
I am a trained primary school teacher with experience teaching and working with children and young people who have a differing needs, across a variety of both formal and informal settings. I have used qualitative and creative methodologies in the past to gather opinions and perceptions from both adults and children around concepts such as creativity, thinking skills, curriculum development, gender and widening access.
Previously, I have facilitated, designed and implemented significant parts of an Erasmus+, co-participatory project with young people living in areas of socio economic disadvantage on the issue of cyberbullying. This involved designing and implementing focus groups and using the quality circle approach to engage with young people.
Currently, I am working with Campbell UK and Ireland to publish three systematic reviews on homelessness. I am leading on the qualitative evidence synthesis of process evaluations related to the implementation on RCTs and non-RCTs. I also review title registrations for the Campbell Education Co-ordinating Group.
