Personal profile

Research interests

I research legal aid, particularly for immigration and asylum, looking at conflicts between quality and financial viability for providers, and at discrepancies between demand and supply. I am an ESRC-funded postdoctoral research fellow in social policy. My research always has an applied focus and aims to produce insights which are useful to policy-makers, drawing on concepts from law and economics. Current projects include a comparative study with Scotland and investigation of local-specific barriers to provision of legal services in areas which are advice deserts.
