I joined the University of Strathclyde as a Research Associate based at the Centre for Excellence for Children’s Care and Protection in 2019. I currently hold an ESRC Postdoctoral Fellow position based in the School of Social Work and Social Policy. This Fellowship focuses on developing and building on ideas from my doctoral thesis, “Families – Inside Prison and Out: Young people’s experiences of having a family member in prison”. It will specifically allow me to explore 'simultaneous imprisonment' for young people, where both the young person and their family member are serving a prison sentence at the same time.
My PhD and Fellowship reflect my broader interests in children and young people, families and relationships, and imprisonment.
