Biography

I joined LJMU in September 2017 as Senior Lecturer in Sociology.

I have a range of research interests in the areas of critical disability studies, the sociology of the body and health and illness and feminism and domestic culture. I have published and co-published on disability hate crime, childhood illness experiences, the social and legal responses to smoking in public and its impact upon the incarcerated, quality of life research, the narrative inquiry technique and the use of food banks in Cheshire.

I have supervised doctoral students from a range of areas and would welcome applications to work with me in the following areas in particular:
- The sociology of health and illness
- The sociology of disability and the body
- Feminism and domestic cultures
- Leaky bodies, stigma and difference
- Disability and poverty porn
- Innovative methodologies
