Lecturer in Criminology (specialist in substance use), University of Stirling

I am a lecturer in Criminology (specialising in Substance Use) at the University of Stirling, and am part of the Salvation Army Centre for Addiction Services and Research and the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research. My recently completed PhD was development of a realist-informed intervention framework for greenspace programmes for improving mental health and supporting people with problem drug and alcohol use. I am currently involved in a number of research projects relating to substance use, harm reduction, intervention development, and greenspace. My research interests include substance use, harm reduction, mental health, and the health benefits of greenspace and greenspace interventions.
