I am currently a Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Social Policy at the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research (SSPSSR) at the University of Kent, and Co-Director of the University of Kent's Q-Step initiative. I am also a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Poverty and Social Justice.
I have a wide range of research interests, currently focused on:
- Disability, the workplace, and the benefits system.
- Attitudes around benefits and 'scroungers'.
- The relationship between evidence and policy.
