I completed my PhD in Primary Care and Health Science / Medical Sociology at Keele University in October 2018. For this I was fortunate enough to be awarded a stipend from Arthritis UK. My study used a  combination of ethnographic observational methods and interviews to analyse GP consultations and the patient experience of these consultations with a focus on musculoskeletal conditions and sickness absence management / work-related support.

I am currently a lecturer in Healthcare Sciences for the i3HS hub and in Public Health. I am the course unit lead for Global Women's Public Health and Health Systems Challenges in Low and Middle Income Countries. I also lead on the sociological and public health input into the undergraduate medical degree at Manchester (MBChB).

I am interested broadly in inequalities in health and social care. I have specific interests in violence against women and girls, global women's health, health systems challenges in low and middle income countries and the intersection of health and social care policy and practice, including patient-practitioner interactions. I have undertaken research examining social class, inequality and austerity and how these areas interact with access to health and social care. I am currently researching how Covid has impacted upon health and social care services from a carer/professional and patient/service user perspective.

I have taught qualitative methodology and critical psychology and sociology at undergraduate and postgraduate level and received my qualitative methodology training from Oxford University.

I am happy to be contacted about potential supervision of PhD / MPhil projects.
