I am a research associate in CASCADE (Children's Social Care Research and Development Centre). My research is centred around all aspects of children's social care but I have a particular interest in children in care, children seperated from parents due to imprisonment and motherhood. Methodologically I am interested in using visual and creative methods to  participation in research, including the use of peer researchers. I also convene CASCADE voices, a group of care experienced young people trained in research methods who consult on research design and dissemination.
