Research Assistant, CASCADE, Cardiff University

I am a research assistant on the 'What Works Centre for Children’s Social Care' project. My main research interests are older children in care, young people's mental health, youth justice system, secure accommodation and care leavers. My background is in the analysis and linkage of large health care records across the UK to look at patterns of care for adolescents with mental health disorders. However, I believe that a mixture of methods are required to answer complex questions, particularly in children's social care and I am interested in developing these skills.
