About me

I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of London, initially in Law (graduating from King's) followed by Mental Health Nursing (graduating from City) for which I received the School of Health Sciences' Academic Achievement Award.  My clinical work, in both the United Kingdom and Australia, has largely involved working alongside men who present a higher risk of violence and aggression, and alongside school age children (5-19 years old).  I spent several years working in NHS corporate services specialising in clinical audit, governance and quality improvement methodology.  I completed postgraduate training in Specialist Community Public Health Nursing at UWE, Bristol.

Area of expertise

I have an academic interest in the emotional wellbeing of adolescent boys, specifically in relation to suicidality and the internalisation and performance of hegemonic masculinity.  Amongst many other public health interests, I am particularly interested in public debate around mental health and wellbeing, and concerns around overpathologising emotional and psychological experience.  I also have significant experience in the facilitation of health service improvement initiatives and the delivery of quality improvement and mental health law training.
