Personal profile

Research Statement

I am a Lecturer in the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work (SSESW), and a Fellow in the Centre for Evidence and Social Innovation (CESI). I am interested in research which seeks to make a difference to the lives of children and young people, particularly in relation to their emotional health and wellbeing.

My research projects focus primarily on measuring children’s wellbeing using standardised questionnaires such as KIDSCREEN within large-scale surveys in schools. Along with colleagues in ARK, I run the online Kids’ Life and Times (KLT) survey of Primary 7 children in Northern Ireland. I am also involved with colleagues in CESI on a large-scale longitudinal study of the role of schools in children’s wellbeing (WiSe). As a member of the Centre for Children’s Rights at Queen’s I work with colleagues on a range of projects that involve a rights-based approach to research with children and young people.
