Brief Description of Work:

I am supervised by Ilina Singh (Psychiatry) and Mike Parker (Ethox).

I am part of Mothers: Early Intervention Ethics (MO:EIE), a project which focuses on the social, political and ethical dimensions of early intervention in maternal health and child development. I focus on Mother and Baby Units in UK Women’s Prisons; seeking to understand how parenting support is enacted and valued, and how conflicts between justice and care are negotiated

I have also undertaken work concerning values inherent in childhood psychiatric disorders, focussing on ADHD. Additionally, I have conducted qualitative work around the values and diagnostic labels in eating disorders.
