My research is concerned the development and evaluation of family- and parenting- based interventions, with a particular focus on the prevention of alcohol misuse.

My research is concerned with the prevention of alcohol misuse by young people, including the role of parents and families.  The evaluation of family-based and parenting prevention interventions and school-based interventions is a major focus of my work.

Current work includes involvement in a randomised controlled trial of the Strengthening Families Programme (10-14), including leading the study's process evaluation.

I am also interested in the potential of social media - particularly Twitter and blogs, as tools for academic researchers.
