I am the current Ann McPherson Research Fellow and my main role involves supporting academics in the Medical Sociology and Health Experiences Research Group (MS&HERG) with their admin, transcribing, and writing.


I have a BA Sociology (2:1 Hons) and an MA Contemporary Sociology (Distinction) from the University of Leicester.


My interests are in medical sociology, mental health, women's health, feminist theory, and qualitative research.


The projects that I am currently working on include an endometriosis study with Dr. Sharon Dixon, a study about peoples' experiences of taking part in medical cohort studies with Dr. Abigail McNiven for MS&HERG's' charity http://www.healthtalk.org/ and a paper about Grandparents with autistic Grandchildren with Dr. Sara Ryan. I am also working on my own paper on weight management.


Recently, I have joined the MS&HERG courses team and have been appointed their social media assistant. Please follow us at https://twitter.com/HERG_Courses


Outside of MS&HERG, I am working on publishing my master's thesis titled 'The 'Snowflakes' of Modernity: A Qualitative Investigation of Millennial Women, Anxiety, and the Challenges of Adulting in a Neoliberal Society' which combines my interests as detailed above.
