York St John University
He joined York St John University in August 2016 as a Lecturer, after completing my PhD Youth Justice Geographies and Convicted Young People’s Mobilities in the Department of Social Policy and Social Work at the University of York. He have a Masters in Research Methods and a particular interest in the use of visual communication tools to facilitate the inclusion of absent voices in strategic discussions. Before re-entering higher education he engaged in a variety of photographic activities including exhibitions, workshops and editorial work. He was employed in supervisory management roles for a number of years and have worked with young people in the youth justice and youth work sectors.
He especially interested in the youth justice system because its population of young people can have limited access to transport and be making the transition to independent travel. Such young people can also need to access a high number of ad hoc services, yet be experiencing a variety of personal difficulties that limit the capacity to attend. This work draws on ideas about mobile inequalities, and transposes them into a context of service delivery for children and young people. Recommendations are also made about the promotion of equitable service access for children and young people.
