Research Interests

My research career as an academic children’s nurse began with the completion of my PhD (2007), having previous undertaken my MSc part time while in Clinical practice. My PhD involved a phenomenological exploration of transition to motherhood and returning to work. Methodologically my expertise is in qualitative although I have been involved in projects of mixed methods. I have been fortunate to be involved in a variety of research projects while at the university for example with teenage Mums, children in care and young offenders. I led the development of a Universal Family Assessment tool with the Early Help in Early Years Project and we have recently published this project. I secured National Lottery Funding to create a centre for families in my local community which has been completed. We have recently completed the evaluation of the Charnwood project which involved Early Help for Vulnerable families. As project lead for the Barnett Schools Resilience Project I was involved in the qualitative aspects. As an Associate professor and project lead for the Converting Willingness To Engagement Project several recommendations have been implemented within the university. This project has been presented at several conferences and has two accepted papers for conferences next year. Following a sucessful tender, the UON evalation, 'Well Northants' project, exploring health inequalities in Northamptonshire is due to commence. As the lead for the Centre of Health Sciences and Services I look forward to facilitating others in the pursuit of their research ambitions.
