My program of research focuses broadly on international child protection, ranging from micro-level understandings of the experiences of children and families affected by war to macro-level studies on child protection systems strengthening. My past research projects include an evaluation of psychosocial programs for children in Chechnya (2005) and northern Uganda (2008), a mapping of social work education in West and Central Africa (2014), and a place-based study on the experiences of Palestinian children and families living in the West Bank and East Jerusalem (2014), and an eight-country baseline study to determine child protection practices and social service workforce needs in southeast Europe (2015-2016).
I am currently the principal investigator or co-principal investigator for the following research projects:
I am willing to supervise students interested in all aspects of global social welfare, specifically topics related to international child protection. Research assistantships related to these themes may also be available. Please email me for more information.
