My background is in Youth Work practice. I hold an MA in CAMHS. Professional values such as promoting participation and developing social capitol are fundamental to my approach in practice and research.

I am currently undertaking an ESRC funded PhD, a Realist Evaluation looking at ‘What works to support care leavers mental health, wellbeing and transitions’.

I plan to work closely with stakeholders in both the statutory and charity sector, as well as working alongside young people with care experience, as the experts in this field.
