I joined LSBU in 2020 as a Research Fellow for the Centre for Addictive Behaviours Research after completing my PhD at LSBU. My research interests are alcohol problems, framing and stigma, particularly in the context of harmful drinkers as a largely non-help seeking population.

My background covers a range of alcohol-related work including commissioning, training and policy work.

My research explores harmful drinkers as a unique group in terms of low problem recognition, and the influence of stigma and problem framing.

I am Chair of the New Directions in the Study of Alcohol Group and host 'The alcohol "problem" podcast, which aims to explore the nature of alcohol problems.
