I am currently working on trials of school-based interventions to reduce violence in schools and to improve menstrual health management in Uganda. As well as on a mixed-methods evidence synthesis project examining the relationship between violence in childhood and decent work and the potenial for skills training programmes to support young people into decent work in Uganda.
I also lead the sexual violence module in the British National Survey of Sexual Attitudes & Lifestyles (Natsal).
I teach on Epidemiology and Statistics modules.
I have PhD students working on the study of sexual behaviour as well as violence against children in primary schools.
My research focuses on adolescents and young people within the fields of sexual health, menstrual hygiene management and violence. I am particularly interested in the development and evaluation of school-based interventions.
