Current research:

My research focuses on the health and wellbeing of children, young people and families. I am particularly interested in inequities in health – how they are experienced, generated and maintained and how they can be minimised through policy. My work employs creative, participatory methods, to promote the active involvement of children and families in research.

I am currently co-leading a World Universities Network grant. Our collaboration brings together international expertise in the fields of migration, child and family studies, public health and child-centred research methodologies to develop work that will explore migrant children’s perspectives on the impact of migration on their health. The collaboration builds upon initial scoping work to understand migrant children’s health experiences and outcomes in Europe. We are currently working on writing up regional scoping reviews (Africa, Americas and Western Pacific) on the health experiences of migrant children.
