Biography

I am a Research Associate (0.5FTE) in the Complexity Programme at the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit with the Transdisciplinary Research for the Improvement of Youth Mental Public Health (TRIUMPH) network. TRIUMPH is funded by UK Research and Innovation, brings together young people, academics, practitioners and policy-makers to find new ways to improve youth mental health and wellbeing, especially among those where need is greatest. I have particular responsibility for young people’s participation and co-production in TRIUMPH, including supporting our Youth Advisory Group.

My research interests include:

  • Co-producing research with young people
  • Qualitative research with young people and communities
  • Cross-cultural research with young people and communities
  • Young people’s public mental health and wellbeing
  • Youth activism and social change
