Programme Leader MSc Public Health

I am Programme Leader for MSc Public Health. My teaching specialisms include mixed methods research, theories and models for behaviour change, and public health interventions.

I gained a PhD in Psychology, at Northumbria University, which focused on the socioeconomic impacts of free school breakfast. My academic research has focused on school and community health interventions. I am currently undertaking research into discrimination, hate crime and access to health care and support services for marginalised and minoritised communities in the UK, including Eastern European migrant women and victims/survivors of modern-day slavery and exploitation. I have also provided consultancy to central and local government departments and the voluntary sector on UK social policy and legislation implementation, reform and impact, and UK and international Human Rights legislation.

Having gained a first-class MA in Special Educational Needs, a first-class BA in English Language and Literature, and a PGCE, I am also a highly qualified educational practitioner, with over ten years' experience working with adults, young people, children, in mainstream, further, higher and community education settings. I have also undertaken research into parent and child-centred psychological education interventions for children and young people with special educational needs, and social, emotional, and mental health needs.
