I am research consultant and policy advisor with 20 years experience working with 3rd sector organisations, specifically in social care, harm reduction, youth and community engagement. I am passionate about stakeholder engagement and creating dialogue between different communities.
I have recently completed my PhD on drug policy participation and governance in Scotland. My most recent professional post was Special Advisor to the Scottish Affairs Select Committee Inquiry into Problem Drug Use in Scotland in 2019, and course organiser for the Dundee University course ‘the Global Politics of Illegal Drugs’.
In May 2019 I was commended for my work on safeguarding with the Scottish Government by the SGSSS’s Research Impact and Knowledge Exchange Competition.
