Current Research

Academic research in later life and care of older people. Predominately working with qualitative and small scale methodologies, with experience of large national funded evaluations of health and social care services, and mixed methods approaches. Majority of studies have involved contact with vulnerable and under served groups of people, and sensitive areas of research, including elder abuse, older homelessness, dementia care, end of life, family carers, older people living in residential care and survivors of flood disaster. 

I have particular interests in inclusive and participatory research approaches. I am a NIHR RDS specialist public involvement adviser and case adviser in the North West RDS region.
