Senior Research Associate iGen Project, Research Student
I am a third year PhD student, interested in the contemporary intersections between religion, society and politics. I am exploring this broad topic through case study analysis of the young adult engagement strategies of specific Christian social action groups in the UK. I am especially interested in the kinds of socio-political participation that these young adult engagement strategies facilitate and how these link to institutional change and changing notions of participation and citizenship.
I am a recipient of an ESRC 1+3 award
I am a Writing Tutor in the FASS (Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences) Writing Space, working one-to-one with undergraduate students to improve their academic writing.

Christian social action groups and young adults: a study in the changing nature of religio-political participation in the UK
I am interested in how my research may be able to impact upon the practice of NGOs. I have worked as a researcher for Green Christian, an environmental movement, and, with Linda Woodhead, conducted an evaluation of Micah Challenge, an organisation that encourages churches to be involved with development advocacy.
