Biography

I was recently awarded my doctorate in Sociology from the Universtiy of Glasgow (2018), thesis entitled 'Rethinking sectarianism: a qualitatiave exploration of the experiences of football supporters in the west of Scotland'. I also completed an MRes in Criminology (2013), an MSc in Political Communication (2011) and an MA (Hons) in History and Politics (2007), all from the University of Glasgow. My research interests include poverty, class inequalities, racialisation and racism, religion, nationalism, and social policy more broadly. I am a Research Associate on the Children's Neighbourhoods Scotland project in Bridgeton and Dalmarnock.


Research interests

My research interests include poverty, class inequalities, racialisation and racism, religion, nationalism, and social policy more broadly. I co-edited and contributed to No Problem Here: Understanding Racism in Scotland, a book published by Luath Press in January 2018. I previously worked for the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research and What Works Scotland, conducting research on a range of research projects including an exploration of the educational needs and experiences of refugee children in Scotland; analysis of community development responses to hate crime; and an evaluation of the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications (Scotland) Act 2012.
