Biography

I have worked as a researcher in Universities and the voluntary sector for over 15-years. During that time I completed a PhD in Public Policy at the University of Strathclyde where I looked at how immigration policy was made under the premiership of Tony Blair. Subsequently I have mostly worked around issues of migration, migration policy and the impact of policy on diverse migrant communities. I am interested in both how policy is made but also how it is received.

My other interests are concerned with social policy, particularly poverty, and about the relationship between central and devolved Government in the UK and how this impacts on social policy. I have a developing interest in the way social policy (much of it devolved) in some cases clashes with reserved policy. This links back to the question of policy and how it is made at different levels of government.

Research interests

At the moment my main research looks at migrant integration policy in different parts of the UK. I'm examining central policy (Westminster) as well as sub-state (Holyrood, Stormont and the Welsh Assembly) and local polices to see what exists in policy terms and whether it has any impact on the migrants subject(ed) to it.

I have also recently done some work on the role of migrants and minorities in the Scottish referendum, looking at Poles and people of Pakistani origin, how they views their identities and whether that would have any impact on how they planned to vote. An edited collection will be coming out in 2016 about this. This has prompted more interest in issues of identity, be that national, transnational, local, class etc and I am keen to pursue work looking at the political ramifications of generational changes in identities.

Supervision

I have supervised a number of students in the past and am currently undertaking PhD supervision on the role of the Arts in refugee integration in Glasgow; the role of the church in integtrating catholic migrants in Norway.
