My research examines family violence, child welfare policy and practice, and state mechanisms for enhancing and ensuring child safety and well-being. More specifically, using a socio-historical and social constructionist frame, my work focuses on macro-level public policies and micro-level social work practices to better understand state efforts to safeguard the welfare of children.
