I am currently working with Sara Ryan on a project about young people's experiences of skin conditions (acne, eczema, psoriasis and alopecia).
I joined the Health Experiences Research Group after completing my PhD in the Department of Geography at Durham University on the topic of pregnancy loss experiences. My research interests include geographies of the body, health experiences, emotional geographies, feminist scholarship, death and bereavement studies, and qualitative research methodologies.
