Overview

I am a mixed-methods Research Associate at the Children's Social Care Research and Development Centre (CASCADE) with a background in social care, psychology and neuroscience.

I am experienced in working across multiple disciplines and have a wide range of research interests. I'm currently interested in the relationship between alternative therapeutic techniques and wider individual/family outcomes, child and adolescent mental health, the influence of cognitive biases, and breaking the cyclical nature of family trauma and involvement in Children's Social Care services.
