Research overview

I research institutions and their impact on understandings of gender and disability. My PhD study was en ethnography of a women's secure learning disability service.  I have studied experiences of self-harm, violence and physical restraint / seclusion from multiple perspectives.  Some of my research has been featured in the NICE guidance for longer term management of self-harm. I am interested in creative and inclusive research methods, feminist and disabiity research.

I currently teach Special Study Modules in the Medical School.

In 2018-19 convened and taught Violence and Society (BA2) and Gender Sex and Bodies (MA) in the Sociology Department. 

Past teaching includes Adult Social Care (BA2 and MA), Contemporary Social Problems (BA1), Society and Drugs (BA2).
