Myfyriwr ymchwil,

Mae'r cynnwys hwn ar gael yn Saesneg yn unig.


My research interests are in improving outcomes for children, with a focus on care experienced children and young people.

My part-time PhD is supervised by Dr Alyson Rees and Dr Jennifer Lyttleton-Smith. It is a CASCADE based study that aims to report the gaps in provision for wellbeing and mental health as identified by care experienced children and young people.

As a research assistant on the Fostering Wellbeing project, I am currently working with The Fostering Network to help conduct a mixed-methods evaluation of their pan-Wales Masterclass training programme.

My work as a PGR Tutor involves teaching in The School of Social Sciences on two modules.  My previous experience of primary school teaching informs my techniques used for creating student engagement.

Recently, I have worked with the writer, Clare E. Potter, to co-ordinate a creative project to stimulate and record young people's viewpoints.  Their audio, written and artistic creations informed the Tranistions Conference

My research interests include childhood, young people, wellbeing and mental health.  I draw upon creative, engaging methods to conduct research.

The evaluation of The Fostering Network's Fostering Wellbeing programme involves a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods.  The qualitative data was collected through semi-structured interviews, and the survey data was analysed using Qualtrics.


I work as a PGR Tutor in the School of Social Sciences.  Over the last three years I have taught on the modules, Children and Childhood, Introduction to Social Science Research and Becoming a Social Scientist.

Before studying at Cardiff University, I worked as a primary school teacher with specialisms in literacy, forest schools, sports and dance.
