General information

Matt is a researcher in the Institute of Health and Wellbeing. His current research projects include identifying the health and wellbeing priorities of Northamptonshire's councillors, a pilot and feasibility study of an incentivised smoking cessation intervention with pregnant women and exploring the health and wellbeing implications of economic hardship. He is particularly interested in research that addresses health and wellbeing inequalities in the population, especially qualitative research that considers the views of marginalised groups. Matt's PhD explored the lives of young Polish migrants who reside in Northamptonshire and focussed on the impacts of migratory experiences upon life course transitions. His MSc investigated a youth-centred interpretation of anti-social behaviour in Coventry working with children and young people (aged 11-15). Matt has published articles in internationally peer reviewed journals and presented research findings at several international conferences.

Research

PhD - The Lives of Young Polish Migrants residing in Northamptonshire.  I began my PhD in May 2008 having completed my MSc in Cultural Geography in Coventry University.  My research is examining the experiences of migration in Northamptonshire from the perspectives of A8 migrants. The project will consider the implications of migration for identity, perceptions of home and belonging. Several methodological techniques will be used in order to work with young migrants in order to establish an insight into their 'lifeworlds'.

October 2006- July 2008
MSc - A Youth-Centred Interpretation of Anti-Social Behaviour in Coventry. I undertook my MSc by Research in October 2006 having completed my BA in Human Geography in Coventry University. Young people aged between 12 and 15 were consulted using a variety of methods to gather a youth-centred interpretation of anti-social behaviour to inform the development of existing legislation and initiatives. The research revealed the subjective nature of anti-social behaviour and the significance of 'image' as a root cause of anti-social behaviour characteristics.
