Hello and welcome to my website, I hope you find it very informative and exciting. If I had to describe myself in three words, it would be: enthusiastic, fun and focused. I am a highly motivated and patient-centred PhD researcher based at the University of Wolverhampton, reviewing whether male domestic abuse victims’ voices are believed and efficiently supported when disclosing to their family and friends. I am dyslexia and was diagnosed early into my PhD, so in advance, do accept my apologies if there are grammar errors. It is a learning process for me.
Currently, I work at Birmingham City University as a Public Health Lecturer and Module Leader. I would like to think my students describe me as a bubbly educator, as learning should be provided in creative ways. I have completed a range of training across a wide range of healthcare and business topics, and these have assisted in broadening my knowledge within the public health arena. These have included the completion of Assessor Training for Public Health England and Public Health Commissioning.
My research aim is to provide additional insight into the experiences of male victims of domestic abuse and support the movement needed to encourage more men to report their abuse. My PhD research will be focusing on an ethnographic approach, whereby the participants will be sharing their stories. My hope is this research will assist in tackling the stigmatisation male victims face when reporting abuse and raise awareness, thus, resulting in a much-needed review into the political approach to domestic abuse.
In terms of academic career, I have the desire to become a Head of School for Public Health, assisting in shaping the future of the next generations of healthcare and public health studies. The aim is to have the opportunity to share my knowledge and assist in shaping their knowledge of not only domestic abuse but of other healthcare areas as I have worked and researched into several areas such as chemsex, sexual violence and sexual health. Alongside completing my PhD. I am keen on completing a teaching qualification to enhance my teaching experience and the experience of my students.
