Biography

I am currently working on several projects with the Scottish Centre for Administrative Data Research (SCADR). At SCADR I am working within the Work and social security research strand, which examines the interactions between health, social security and employment. This involves analysing de-identified linked administrative data from sources such as the benefits system, the tax system and the health service. My work with SCADR is closely related to my ESRC-funded PhD research, which investigated the mental health impacts of benefit sanctions.

Research interests

My research interests are in the areas of:

  • The impacts of welfare reforms;
  • The interaction between the social security system and labour markets;
  • The social determinants of health and well-being.
