  • Research Associate: Scottish Children's Neighbourhoods (Educational Leadership & Policy)

Biography

Current research 

I am a sociologist with research interests spanning a range of social and economic inequalities. I currently work as a Research Associate on the Children's Neighbourhoods Scotland programme, based in the School of Education. Children's Neighbourhoods Scotland (CNS) is a collaboration between the University and Glasgow Centre for Population Health. In 2018, CNS received £2M grant funding from the Scottish Government to improve the health and well-being of children and young people in neighbourhoods with high levels of child poverty. CNS works in neighbourhoods in Glasgow, South Lanarkshire and West Dunbartonshire. We carry out participatory research with children and young people using the capabilities approach, through which they explore enablers and barriers to wellbeing. Alongside findings from research with stakeholders who work with children and young people, this set the agenda for key areas of work and action for CNS local coordinators in the community, in collaboration with third and public sector partner organisations.

Previous experience

Prior to joining the CNS research team in 2018, I worked for the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research and What Works Scotland, conducting research on a range of research projects including an exploration of the educational needs and experiences of refugee children in Scotland; analysis of community development responses to hate crime; and an evaluation of the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Act 2012. My background before returning to university to study for my PhD was in hospitality and employability.

Qualifications

In 2018 I was awarded my doctorate in Sociology from the Universtiy of Glasgow. My thesis was entitled 'Rethinking sectarianism: a qualitatiave exploration of the experiences of football supporters in the west of Scotland', and I was supervised by Dr Susan Batchelor (Criminology) and Professor Satnam Virdee (Sociology). I also completed an MRes in Criminology (2013), an MSc (Distinction) in Political Communication (2011) and an MA (First Class Hons) in History and Politics (2007), all at the University of Glasgow.

Research interests

My research interests include poverty, class inequalities, racialisation and racism, nationalism, and social policy more broadly. CNS is a mixed methods research programme, though my research is predominately qualitiative, with a particular interest in collaborative and participatory research.
