About me

I am a social scientist with degrees in Geography (UCL) and Sociology as Applied to Medicine (KCL). Before joining UWE Bristol in 2023, I was Assistant Professor at LSHTM (2013-2023) within the Faculty of Public Health. Prior to this, I completed a PhD and held a research post within the NIHR-funded SAPPHIRE Programme on mental illness-related stigma and discrimination at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, KCL.

I am Co-Programme Leader for the BSc Public Health Practitioner Degree (Apprenticeship). Within this course, I am Module Leader for Introduction to Health Promotion (Year 1) and I contribute to Modules across the programme.

I am a dissertation supervisor for students taking the MSc Public Health and I also teach on the Qualitative Health Research Module.

Area of expertise

I have expertise in the sociology of health and illness, the sociology of mental health, public health (especially health promotion, research design for public health and health policy), social and structural determinants of health, stigma and dsicrimination, and qualitative methods.
