She is particularly interested in the effectiveness of housing and regeneration interventions as well as the history of public health and housing policy.
Her wider research and enterprise interests include housing and community regeneration; energy efficiency and fuel poverty; housing support and provision in the developing world; housing and regeneration in deprived seaside towns; use of evidence based practice in housing and public health; and health and social care for an ageing population. She is particularly interested in novel methods of dissemination to capture wider audiences and how we can encourage wider interest in and sensitivity to housing issues through the humanities.
