I am the Academic Course Lead for the BA Sociology and BSc Criminology and Sociology courses and teach on the Sociology, Criminology and International Relations courses. My current research interests relate to domestic gender roles and the ways in which community groups can address issues of inequality and isolation.

I am particularly interested in participatory research approaches and in projects which enable students to make a difference to communities through their research. I am currently supervising postgraduate research projects focusing on domestic inequality during the Covid-19 pandemic and the role of community groups in building local communities. My previous research has focused on the experiences of disabled students in Higher Education, the health and healthcare of people with learning disabilities, ‘real world’ learning for students in HE, the nature of community ‘assets’, and an evaluation of a Health Independent Domestic Violence Advisor (HIDVA) project.
