My research focuses on the health care response to domestic violence and abuse. I have been conducting research and evaluations on a range of gender-based violence and child safeguarding related professional interventions.
Currently I am a Research Fellow and Workstream I Principal Investigator for REPROVIDE (Reaching Everyone Programme of Research On Violence In diverse Domestic Environments) working on the development and testing of an integrated domestic violence and abuse training intervention for general practice (IRIS+). I also work on a study determining the associations between experience of intimate partner violence and abuse in young adulthood and health.
I am based at the Centre for Academic Primary Care at the Bristol Medical School and I am a member of the Domestic Violence and Abuse Health Researchers Group.
