My principle research interests are in adolescence and health related risk taking with a focus on sexual health, pornography and alcohol. I am particularly interested in young men's health and how this intersects with both masculinities and social exclusion to provide a context within which health risk taking takes place. Seeking to understand risk taking in this way enables us to move away from models of individual behaviour change, to a more productive exploration of the social contexts and forces that need to be addressed to bring about large scale changes in health outcomes for young people.
