Biography

I have been teaching at the University of Glasgow since 2009 across a range of undergradute and postgraduate programmes within the School of Education. I currently teach on courses for MSc in Educational Studies, MEduc programmes and BA Community Development. 

I worked for STRADA (Scottish Training on Drugs and Alcohol) until its closure in 2016, lecturing on the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Drug and Alcohol Studies. I developed and delivered courses for Initial Teacher Educators on Children Affected by Parental Substance Use.  I  have also worked as a trainer, specialising in interagency workshops the impacts of parental substance use, and designed and delivered training on intersecting issues such as pregnancy and substance use, domestic abuse and sexual abuse. 

I have significant experience of practice as a counsellor and outreach worker supporting drug users and their families. I have worked in a range of projects developing and delivering services for drug users and their families. My last post before joining the University was a new project offering supportive assertive outreach to pregnant drug users and their children. 

I am currently completing my PhD study which is exploring the role of school as a 'safe haven' or 'nightmare' for children and young people and their drug using mothers / caregivers. 

Research interests

I am intrested in a number of areas of research;

Women who use substances. 

Children and young people impacted by parental substance use.

Community responses to support around marginalised and stigmatised groups.

Intersections with abuse, including violence and sexual abuse. 

Schools as places of safety and enabling wellbeing. 

Collaboration across services/ agencies in developing effective supports in communities.
