About me

I am a senior researcher, with over 20 years’ experience of planning and conducting social research and evaluation, mainly using qualitative approaches, creative and mixed methodologies.

My work covers health, education, social care, welfare and disability. I mainly specialise in research and evaluation with and about children, young people and their families.

Prior to undertaking my Masters in Research, I worked for over 20 years in UK  social policy, welfare and health fields.

I regularly train and support others to undertake their own research and evaluations, including using creative methods and developing peer research.

I am creative and inclusive and work by high ethical and other quality standards – read more
