Personal profile


Georgia joined the Centre for Research on Children and Families in 2011, to begin an ESRC Post-Doctoral Fellowship, working with Professor Margaret O’Brien on a project entitled: ‘Utilising fathers’ narratives to inform interventions for supporting separated parents’. Her doctoral thesis was a qualitative sociological study of fathering after separation and divorce. Georgia then worked on another ESRC funded project, looking at care planning for looked after children, and the role of the Independent Reviewing Officer. Since 2014, Georgia has worked on two significant and innovative, Nuffield funded projects: 2014-17, Counting fathers in; Men’s experiences of the child protection system; and 2017-2019/20 Up Against It: Understanding the scale, pattern & dynamics of fathers’ recurrent appearance in care proceedings. From 2021-22 she was PI on an independent evaluation of the Caring Dads programme in Blackburn with Darwen.
