Prior to joining Strathclyde, I was Professor of Social Care at Middlesex University, London where I worked for 11 years. My research interests lie in the experiences of ageing in marginalised communities and most of my research is applied and co-produced with people with lived experience.

In relation to learning and teaching I have written or edited 18 key textbooks covering a range of topics on leadership, management, organisational development, feminism, sexual and gender identities, values and ethics and social work supervision. I have also published widely in other areas such as the use of the arts in professional education, trans and non-binary parenting, suicide and mental health of people living in care homes.
