Health education

My two distinct areas of research interest are the health of socially excluded groups and educational research.

My previous research has examined the health of prisoners, drug users, commercial sex workers, probationers, those living in poverty and migrants. The current focus is on the health of prisoners across Europe and Central Asia, linking with the WHO Collaborating Centre for the Health in Prisons Programme, WHO European Region. Other strands of research include work on the prevention of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in affected communities in the UK through community researchers.

As a fellow of the Higher Education Academy, I retain a keen interest in educational issues, particularly interprofessional education and capacity building for health.
