She was previously a research fellow at the Dartington Social Research Unit (DSRU) leading two randomised controlled trials to evaluate the effectiveness of two interventions (a child mentoring and parent training intervention) to prevent youth offending as part of the Realising Ambition programme, a 25m Big Lottery Fund investment.

This work was part of the National Academy for Parenting Research programme, a 30m DfSCF investment. Details of the trial and related work can be found here:
