I have written widely on issues of alcohol and drug policy, having completed a PhD at Bournemouth University that looked at ideas of gender and class in people's understandings of drinking in the night-time economy.
After completing my PhD I worked for the Russell Group of Universities on higher education policy, with particular focus on university admissions, widening participation and public engagement, as well as immigration policy. I also did some work on employability and business collaboration
As well as being a Visiting Fellow at the university, I now work for Public Health Dorset, which has superseded the Dorset Drug and Alcohol Action Team (DAAT) in commissioning drug and alcohol treatment services within the Dorset County Council area.
