Personal profile

Research interests

I am a registered social worker, with experience working in the statutory, private and voluntary sectors, both in community, acute hospital and specialist in-patient services, with adults, young people and children. My professional specialism is adult mental health.

I completed a Masters degree in Global Health at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School in 2022, and stepped away from frontline practice to undertake a PhD at the University of Brighton. My PhD study aims to develop tools to improve the identification and support of victims of domestic abuse and modern slavery in a telemedicine context.

I am interested in research that improves the accessibility and acceptability of health and social care services, with a particular focus on marginalised and disadvantaged populations. I am especially interested in issues surrounding mental health, conflict and violence, social justice, and human rights, and their intersections with gender, race and sexuality identities. I am also interested in social work education, and ways to support and encourage more social work practitioner-led research.
