Current Research

I am a Lecturer in Young People's Health Inequalities and a Research Fellow with specialism in gender, sexualities and youth, specifically in the topic areas of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and mental health. I am currently leading an ESRC funded secondary data analysis project building on the Queer Futures 2 project: designed to understand the best types of mental health support for LGBTQ+ young people, which I worked on until completion in 2023.
