Personal profile

Research interests

I am Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre for Death and Society (CDAS), University of Bath and ESRC Postdoctoral Fellow at the Open University. Previously, I lectured in Sociology in the Department of Social and Policy Sciences, University of Bath, where I completed my PhD in January 2022 on an ESRC +3 scholarship.


My research focuses on end of life care (EOLC), care work, old age and care homes.

My doctoral thesis explores EOLC practice in the English care home sector. It does so by combining quantitative and qualitative methods with feminist social reproduction theory and Foucault’s biopolitics.

My ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship focuses on developing my PhD findings for publication and research funding proposals in the related field of sexual and intimate relationships in old age living with dementia in a care home or at home.

In May 2022 I delivered the University of Bath Beatrice Godwin Memorial Lecture as part of the public engagement event Dying Matters Awareness week sponsored by Hospice UK. My research on death identification and patterns of social care provision in old age features in Social Science and Medicine.


Research interests: old age, end of life care (EOLC), palliative care, care homes, care work, dementia, sexuality, intimate relationships, social reproduction theory (SRT), biopolitics.
