Biography

I'm a sociologist working as a lecturer within the College of Medicine, Veterinary, and Life Sciences. I predominantly work with postgraduate students, and support PGT programmes aligned with the Institute of Health and Wellbeing.

I've worked at this university since 2013 in a range of teaching and research roles. Additionally, I'm a UofG graduate, having completed an MA(hons), MRes, and PhD across Sociology and Social Policy/Urban Studies subject areas between 2007-2018. I completed my PhD in Sociology - 'I try hard not to blame my dad': A sociological interpretation of the 'problem' with parental substance use - in 2018. 

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 - particularly kidney failure;
  • 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.
