Biography

I have worked for the university in a range of roles for over 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 am also the Deputy Director of Education for the School of Health and Wellbeing.

My background is in Sociology and Social Policy. My teaching interests center around inequalities, identity, health, political determinants of health, and lived experience. I am a University of Glasgow graduate, having completed all my tertiary education at this institution:

I am currently finishing my MEd in Academic Practice (estimated completion: June 2024).

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 also have a number of pedagogical research interests:

  • Emotions in teaching;
  • Feminist approaches to teaching and learning;
  • Trauma, and how this can inform learning;
  • Widening participation in PGT spaces;
  • Trigger warnings / content notes;
  • Knowledge production within learning and teaching spaces.
