I am a Lecturer in Public Policy at the University of Stirling. My expertise lies in in public health and social policy in the devolved UK and France.
My current research focuses on why government policy isn't more preventive, and how prevention policy might more effectively be designed and delivered across different sectors. I am also interested in questions of gender and policy, and have been researching the evolution of post-war French prostitution policy for the last decade.
I joined the University of Stirling in 2017, having previously worked at the Public Policy Institute for Wales at Cardiff University. My new book (with Paul Cairney), 'Why isn't Government policy more preventive?' has just come out with Oxford University Press: https://global.oup.com/academic/product/why-isnt-government-policy-more-preventive-9780198793298?cc=gb&lang=en&
