Research Interests

Jolie joined PSSRU in October 2020 and works for the social care theme of the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration Kent Surrey Sussex (ARC KSS). She has a PhD in Psychology, during which her research focussed on neurodivergence in child development.

Jolie is currently working on the following funded projects:
  • Creating Inclusive Residential Care for LGBTQ+ Elders (CIRCLE) as Principal Investigator (funded by NIHR ARC KSS).
  • Lgbtq+ Young People in Social cAre (LYPSA) as Research Fellow led by The University of Birmingham (funded by What Works for Children’s Social Care).
