Research Interests

Current Teaching

I teach on Health, Life & Bodies (Socl 306) with Celia Roberts where we have pioneered problem based learning methods in Sociology. I convene Disasters: why do things go wrong?  and contribute to Skills for Researching Social Life in Part II Sociology.

I am currently supervising seven doctoral students: five in Sociology and two in Lancaster Medical School where I also supervise two NIHR Academic Clinical Fellows. The doctoral studies relate to biosensors, co-production of care services, telecare, patient safety, situated learning and Bovine TB policy.
