I joined Keele in September 2018. I completed my undergraduate, masters and PhD at the University of Glasgow. My PhD research was on the ‘The Everyday Geographies of Living with Diabetes’ in which I was interested in the social and spatial dynamics that living with the condition can entail. After completing my PhD I began working as research fellow in the at the University of Edinburgh, studying young people’s use of electronic cigarettes and evaluating evidence of the impact that electronic cigarettes might have on socio-economic health inequalities caused by smoking.

Research and scholarship

My research interests encompass emotional geographies; geographies of health, illness, impairment and wellbeing and public health. I am particularly interested in issues around diabetes, smoking, vaping and health inequalities. In my current research I am exploring the social, cultural, embodied and spatial norms associated with e-cigarette use.
