My main areas of research are related to the broad field of Health education across the lifecourse. Currently I am researching how caregivers understand and experience sexualities education with their children. In particular I am interested in the underlying societal discourses that caregivers draw on in contemporary times when engaging (or disengaging) from sexuality education and what these 'produce' in peoples lives.Furthermore I am interested in the interplay between the private/public binary that often plays out in sexuality education and the impact of this on the wellbeing of people. My other areas of research include teacher education and the use of the Health Promoting Schools framework to enhance student and community wellbeing.
