Biography

I joined the university in 2010. I received my BA from Cambridge University (2001) and my MA (2003) and PhD (2007) from Manchester University. Prior to joining Glasgow University, I worked on a range of collaborative projects around the issue of problematic drug use, specifically the health needs of older drug users, the effectiveness of needle exchanges and, more recently, recovery from heroin use.

Research interests

My main teaching and research interests are in the area of drug use and ‘misuse’, addiction and recovery and embodiment, diet and identity, and ideas about dirt. My regional area of interest is Hawai‘i and the United Kingdom.
