I am an interdisciplinary researcher with a background in psychology and I am a Chartered Psychologist of the British Psychological Society. I have held research grants from a range of funders including the ESRC, EPSRC, European Commission, UK Government departments and devolved administrations, local authorities, housing organisations, charities and private sector organisations. 

I am the academic lead of the University's Healthy Housing Initiative (HHI). My work broadly aims to understand and contribute to alleviating the housing and neighbourhood inequalities experienced by members of marginalised communities. I have a research experience in fields as diverse as social inclusion, migration,  homelessness, fuel poverty, energy efficiency and regeneration. 

I am routinely called upon by external bodies for expert input including the European Parliament, Council of Europe, Fundamental Rights Agency, major funders and government departments. I have had a number of external roles including as Specialist Advisor to the Parliamentary Women & Equalities Committee and have supported the UK All Party Parliamentary Groups on Migration and Gypsy, Travellers and Roma in relation to monitoring the impacts of Brexit. Between 2019 - 2021 I was Chair of the UKs Housing Studies Association. I currently sit on the Editorial Board of Thinkhouse.
