Personal profile


I have a vast interest in lived experiences of those who move in and out of crime and poverty. My specialist area is gangs and grounded theory methodologies. Although I do have research interests in youth work, youth studies, culture, street cultures, desistance, class relations and power.  I enjoy using creative methodologies that work alongside people to explore visual and verbal meaning making I  have an interdisciplinary background of psychology, sociology and criminology.I also have a strong practitioner background, being a youth worker in Glasgow for just under ten years, a mentor forex-offenders and co-ordinating sports to reduce anti-social behaviour in young people. I enjjoy working with people from all walks of lives.


My teaching interests are similar to my research interests and include street cultures, theoretical understandings and creative and innovative approaches to teaching and learning. I would probably say my pedagogical approach is head, hands and heart based on transformative learning practices.
