Reader in the School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University

I joined Cardiff University in September 2016 and teach on a number of undergraduate and post-graduate Social Science modules, and convene modules on International and Comparative Social and Public Policy.

Over the past 20 years my research has focused on different aspects of international development, and on poverty analysis and anti-poverty strategies. I am also interested in social policy and its role in national development strategies in the era of the Sustainable Development Goals.

I am currently Principal Investigator on an ESRC-GRCF-SDAI research project, collaborating with UNICEF Nigeria, looking at the problem of multiple malnutrition in young children in West and Central Africa.
