Research Overview

An inter-disciplinary qualitative researcher, my work has been published in international journals spanning housing and urban studies, geography and social policy. My research has an applied as well as a theoretical dimension, with a particular focus on:

*Social Housing & Low-Cost Homeownership
*Community Governance, Empowerment & Asset Ownership
*Community Regeneration
*Housing, Tenure & Inequality
*Housing & Social Policy in a Devolved Scotland
*Foucauldian Theories of Power & Resistance

I am currently a member of the editorial board for the journal Social Policy and Society, as well as Reviews Co-Editor for the journal of Housing Studies. Since 2008 I have also been actively involved in the Housing Studies Association (HSA) – an inter-disciplinary UK learned society. I’m an elected member of the Executive Committee, and during 2009-2011 held the post of Communication’s Officer. I also co-organised the association’s 2011 annual conference on the theme of 'Housing in Hard Times: class, poverty and social exclusion'.

I have led research projects supported by third sector organisations (e.g. Glasgow and West of Scotland Forum of Housing Associations), as well as academic funders (e.g. British Academy, Urban Studies Foundation). My work is policy relevant, and has impact on policy and practice.
