Biography

Dr Helen Traill is a postdoctoral researcher at the Adam Smith Business School. She holds a PhD from the London School of Economics and Political Science in Sociology, which focused on practices of communality in community growing projects and their relation to urban land politics.

Helen currently works on a Scottish Government/EU Social Innovation Fund research project that explores the ethics of sustainability in areas of urban deprivation. The project is working alongside and learning from a community food hub in the East End of Glasgow. This research focuses on sustainability, the role of food in the urban and community participation.

Her research interests broadly encompass the urban sociology of everyday life, including community organisations and networks, (classed) practices of sustainability, and the politics of urban land use.
