I have recently completed my PhD exploring men's recreational use of Androgenic Anabolic Steroid Use. I am now a part-time lecturer in Social Work, specialising in Developing Professional Relationships. I am also working part-time on the an EU funded research project: "The Other Side of the Story: Perpetrators in Change" (OSSPC). The aim of the OSSPC project is to prevent further domestic violence and change violent behavioral patterns by increasing the capacity of frontline workers that will further teach perpetrators of domestic violence to adopt non-violent behavior in interpersonal relationships and understand the impact of domestic violence on the them, family and community.
Previous Career: I qualified as a Social Worker in 2016 and have worked in the Addiction and Adult Social Work fields. Prior to that I was a learning and development professional, with 17 years’ experience: including roles at both Bournemouth and Cranfield University and also working for Amazon. I started my career as an Officer in the Royal Air Force.
