I am a social scientist and my research and teaching expertise are in the area of illict drugs use including the prevention of blood borne viruses, and in research methodologies. My research work has focussed on developing interventions that seek to reduce harms from drug injecting, examining the prevalence and incidence of blood borne viruses in communitites and in prisons, and qualitative work on the harms from injecting novel psychoactive substances. I am currently funded as a co-investigator on an ESRC funded study to lead a policy analysis in a multi partner study that is using en ethnographic approach to studying how parents and families are governed by service providers.
