Research Interests

I have worked in a variety of healthcare fields over the last ten years, from sexual health to sexual violence, to hospital discharge and working as a dispenser in a pharmacy. Thus, resulting in me developing a keen interest in public health.

One of the topics is domestic abuse, which is nationally hidden within families. I’ve been very interest in this topic for several years, but my curiosity spiked in 2014 when completing a module at the University of Wolverhampton; Violent Societies – Violent Lives: Identifying the Public Health response and Research Methods. Here the class explored the underpinning theories; feminist, biological, sociological, and psychological, which submerged into the topic. Domestic abuse is gripping the nation, due to the devastating public health concerns affected by not only the victims but their families too, causing a rippling effect. Upon review of research articles and literature available, here I sparked my focused upon male victims, as I felt further research was needed to empower male victims to come forward and report their abuse.

  • Domestic Abuse/ Violence
