I am currently a lecturer in Sociology at the University of Exeter. I completed my ESRC funded PhD exploring the discourses pertaining to, and lived experiences of, ‘Maternal Obesity’ and Gestational Diabetes Mellitus/Type Two Diabetes Mellitus in the pregnancy at Plymouth University in 2014.  I have research interests in: critical public health; Foucauldian discourse analysis; qualitative methodologies; media analysis; ‘Netnography’.  I have previously published work about ‘older’ and ‘renewed’ mothering.  I am a member of the British Sociological Association (BSA), the BSA Medical Sociology study group, the BSA Human Reproduction study group and the BSA Families and Relationships study group.
