I joined PenCLAHRC in April 2017 to work on a variety of projects with a focus on child health and implementation science. My research interests are evidence-based prevention and early intervention, notably service design and evaluation. I have undertaken studies involving a variety of methods, including evidence reviews and randomised controlled trials, and covering a range of subject areas, such as bullying, child maltreatment and social-emotional learning. I am particularly interested in forms of intervention that have the potential to achieve impact at scale, and in methods for developing and testing these - including co-production with users and the use of rapid cycle innovation. I also enjoy engaging in debates about the value of evidence-based approaches in children's services. I am an Associate of the Dartington Social Research Unit, an advisor to the Board of the European Society for Prevention Research and a member of the Early Intervention Foundation Evidence Panel.
