    I mainly take a qualitative approach to research - much of my work has involved talking to prisoners about their experiences of being inside and how that impacts on their health and wellbeing. I've recently been involved in a project with the Jigsaw Visitors' Centre at HM Prison Leeds, evaluating their service provision for prisoners' families, prisoners and prison staff.
