Postgraduate Researcher in Human Geography, School of Environment, Education and Development (SEED).

Research Project (provisional title): Lived experiences of young ‘ostomates’: negotiations with space, stigma, and identity. Supervised by Dr Sarah Marie Hall, Dr Caitlin Henry and Dr Bethan Evans .

ESRC funded CASE Studentship, partnered with GetYourBellyOut and The University of Manchester. 


My research explores the multiple lived experiences of young ostomates in the UK. Through a relational geographical lens, my PhD research investigates how living with an ostomy shapes, and is shaped by negotiations with(in) space, stigma and identity. My research interests include Geographies of Disability, Everyday Life and Youth, as well and feminist and participatory methodologies.

I came to Manchester in 2016 to study Geography (BA), and continued to complete an MSc in Sociological Research. I am also a member of the Feminist Collective.

Postgraduate Taught Thesis: Relationships, space and identity; a relational exploration of young people’s everyday experiences of living with IBS.

Undergraduate Thesis: A stellar performance: A Foucauldian analysis of ‘the student’ as a neoliberal subject.
