Personal profile


I am a social scientist, and my research and teaching expertise are in the area of illicit drug use including the prevention and reduction of drug-related harms. 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 communities and in prisons, and qualitative work on harms from injecting novel psychoactive substances, as well as theoretical evaluations of harm reduction services. I am currently the PI on an NIHR funded multi-partner Realist Evaluation of medication assisted treatment and injecting equipment providers in the UK and 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.
