I am researching the relationships between participation, the internet and citizenship. I work in partnership with diverse stakeholders as a Research Stream Leader in the Wellbeing, Health and Youth Centre of Research Excellence, researching how we can maximise young people's opportunities for good health.
Specifically, I am concerned with how diverse actors – including ‘end users’ - mobilise to solve policy problems – and to what effect.
My most recent book is: Young Citizens and Political Participation in a Digital Society, Palgrave Macmillan 2015.
