    Research Interests

    My research is varied and focuses on vulnerable and hard to reach populations using innovative research methods including peer research with young people.  I have applied these methods in a diverse range of  studies; with care leavers with mental health needs and disabilities; fathers parenting programmes; socially vulnerable mothers; cancer caregivers; and people who self-injure.  My upcoming project is Trial Coordinator on The JACK Trial, a sexual health intervention taking place in post-primary schools across the UK.
