Personal profile

Research interests

I joined the Department as a Lecturer in British Politics in 2015, having previously taught at the University of Bristol and the University of Birmingham.

I am predominantly interested in gender equality and feminist politics, especially where these intersect with policy processes in the United Kingdom. I have a particular interest in reproductive rights and reproductive justice. My current research focuses on ongoing campaigns around abortion in the UK, in particular around decriminalisation. I am also interested in intersectional organising in reproductive rights activism.

Previous projects have explored the gendered nature of risk governance, the concept of 'resilience' in social policy, and the status of women in universities.

Willing to supervise PhD

I would be happy to supervise doctoral researchers in the following areas:

  • feminist and women's movements
  • the politics of sexual and reproductive health and rights
  • intersectionality
  • gender and public policy
  • equality policy
  • risk and resilience in social policy

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
