I joined the University of Salford as an hourly paid lecturer in 2009, becoming a part time permanent member of staff in 2010.


My academic interests focus on sociology with an emphasis on feminism. I predominantly teach on Social Policy and Differentiation, Introduction to Sociology, Sociology of Health and Illness, and Research Methods modules, and I particularly enjoyed teaching on the cross-college module Sociology of Embodiment with HuLSS’s Professor Greg Smith.

I also teach Wordscope, the University’s Academic Writing course.

Research Interests

My current research is in two strands: the August 2011 riots in Salford, which includes media content analysis with Dr Sharon Coen and work on the representation of the city within literature, particularly crime fiction. The overriding theme linking my research is the lived experience and textual representation of the postmodern city.

I am also on the editorial board of Content!on, the peer reviewed, multidisciplinary journal of social protest.
