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 implementation of different models of personalisation in social care and health across the UK and new directives for the integration of health and social care services. I am also examining the impact of benefit changes on the lives of disabled people and evaluating the new ILF Transition in Scotland.
