Background and activities

Research Interests

My training, research, and policy interests focus on relational welfare and well-being focusing on citizenship, public value, and social justice. Especially, I am interested in recovery in mental health and substance use. I am also interested in family therapy and relational therapies. I am also focusing on the theories of science, qualitative research methods, and the use of participatory action research and citizen science methodologies.
