Biography

I have worked for the university in a range of roles for almost ten years. In March 2022, I took over as programme lead for the Masters in Public Health programme. Prior to this, I was a lecturer for the MVLS Graduate School, and held a variety of fixed-term teaching and research roles between September 2013 and August 2019.

I'm a sociologist by training, and my research and teaching interests center around inequalities, identity, and lived experience. I am a UofG graduate, having completed all my tertiary education at this institution:

As a strong believer in continuous learning, I am currently embarking on another masters qualification - an MEd in Academic Practice.

Research interests

My research interests centre around intersecting inequalities, bodies, and health. I have a keen interest in: 

  • Substance use - illegal drugs, pharmaceutical drugs, and alcohol;
  • Intersectionality and health (specifically gender-based issues);
  • Power, inequality, and health inequalities - particularly the role political ideology takes in the construction of policy;
  • Ethical decision making and ethical dilemmas in research;
  • Chronic health conditions;
  • The role families, friends, and supportive relationships take in promoting health;
  • Alternative forms of gathering and analysing qualitative data.

I'm currently embarking on a pedagogical research project exploring knowledge production, lived experience, and teaching approaches.

I also co-lead a microcredential course - MED5632 Substance Use in the Contemporary World (10CR). On top of this, I provide guest lectures for a variety of courses across different colleges.
