    Personal profile


    Eleanor obtained a BSc in Psychology from Loughborough University and then spent 10 years specialising in research in the areas of child protection and the care system. She was involved in research studies on kinship care, child neglect, social pedagogy in residential children’s homes and peer violence in foster care and residential settings and has a strong publication record in this area.

    Eleanor then went on to complete her PhD at the University of Warwick. Her interdisciplinary PhD research combined social work and linguistics and examined the approaches to working with neglected children and their parents that were constructed in and through interaction, connecting these approaches with macro discourses about the relationship between the family and the state in in the context of child protection.

    Since joining the Centre for Intelligent Healthcare in 2021 as a Research Fellow, Eleanor has worked on the NIHR funded MESARCH project, evaluating sexual assault referral centres across England and examining health, wellbeing and service access among survivors of sexual violence. She is also working on a creative health project funded by Public Health Warwickshire.

    Eleanor has experience of teaching at postgraduate level having lectured and supervised students on the MA Social Work at the University of Warwick whilst completing her PhD.

My research also concerns domestic and sexual violence and the experiences of survivors of these types of abuse.
