Research interests

My research interests focus on policies which promote independent living and equality for disabled people. I am currently exploring these themes in relation to the impact of the austerity measures in relation to the social and economic position of disabled people and legislation relating to the integration of health and social care.

In addition, my wider work has included analyses of cash payment models. This has included work on the personalisation agenda across social policy, notably through direct payments and self-directed support.
