Hi, I'm a research fellow at the Social and Public Health Sciences Unit at the University of Glasgow.

I have studied Psychology (BSc), Social research methods (MRes), Social Epidemiology (PhD) and substance use treatment (PgCert).

I have worked on studies looking at admission to care homes for older people, sexual health services for young people, gender diversity in the FTSE 100, mental health after bereavement, and a trial of an adolescent parenting intervention.

At the moment, most of my research focusses on public health, drugs and alcohol, and the social and family influences on young people's health behaviour.

In my spare time I enjoy swimming, playing the Bouzouki and Mandolin, Motorbiking around the Highlands of Scotland, and playing fetch with Dylan and Bailey, and taking naps. That's Dylan in the photo.

I'm looking forward to meeting you all at the summer school!
