Recently, I have been involved in managing support for disabled students in higher education, following a career as a researcher and lecturer in universities around Wales, including the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies, Aberystwyth, Cardiff University and Swansea University. 

I was also Deputy Head of Research and Education at the charity Cerebra before working as a specialist support lecturer for disabled students and Study Skills tutor at UWTSD.

I am currently teaching on the International Hotel Management programmes, as well as the Supporting Abilities and Behaviours and Integrated Project modules in Health & Social Care.

My research has focussed on social justice issues, including disability, gender, homelessness and domestic abuse.

Research expertise in the areas of social inclusion, disability, carers, gender and participatory social research.

Consultancy undertaken on a range of social justice research projects including domestic abuse (for the City and County of Swansea), homelessness (for Caer Las) and the experiences of young parents (for Action for Children). In addition, training on doing research with disabled people was developed and delivered for the Social Research Association.
