I am a sociology lecturer and author of 'Gender, Class and Food, families, bodies and health' (Palgrave MacMillan 2015). My research interests are in the areas of food, the body, health, gender, maternal identities and culture, as well as auto/biographical and feminist approaches to research. I am the Sociology of Health & Illness (SHI) Mildred Blaxter Post-Doctoral Fellow for 12 months from September 2015. I am a member of the European Sociological Association (ESA), the British Sociological Association (BSA), the BSA Food Study Group and the BSA Auto/Biography study group.
