Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline

  • Care experienced children and young people
  • Social pedagogic practice 
  • Anti-racist practice


I have over 20 years work experience in social work and social care. Mainly in residential ​settings including working with people experiencing homelessness, addictions, mental illness, offending and looked after children and young people.

I began teaching social work in 2002 on the BA (Hons) Residential Pathway at the Robert Gordon University. I joined UWS to teach on the social work programme in February 2014.

I am keen on developing an awareness of the concept and practice of social pedagogy and how this approach could utilised in the Scottish context. I am strongly committed to promoting better outcomes for all care experienced people in Scotland.

I also strongly believe in the importance of understanding the historical struggle of  peoples oppressed by the self-interest of ruling elites and the lessons we can draw for active resistance in these troubled times.

I continue to harbour great hopes for the creation of an independent socially just Scotland. ​
