I’m a Lecturer in Social Research Methods at the Open University. I’m based in the Graduate School, where I’m Academic Lead for PGR Training in the Social Sciences- that is, I’m in charge of making sure PhD and Professional Doctorate students get all the social science research training they need.
A critical social psychologist, I research the relationship between subjectivities and space. My PhD was on bisexual spaces, and I’m currently co-editing a major new book on bisexuality for Routledge. I’m also involved in projects about PGRs’ experiences of the virtual and material spaces of HE.
Before joining the OU full-time in 2015, I worked in schools and colleges for seventeen years, teaching A Level Sociology and Psychology while studying part-time for my MSc and PhD, and tutoring on Open University courses.
Originally from Leeds, I live in Bedford with my family, and I enjoy wild swimming and mischief.
