Biography

I am a lecturer in sociology as part of the social sciences team at Edinburgh Napier University. I completed my PhD in 2015 under the supervision of Professor Lynn Jamieson and Dr Angus Bancroft at Edinburgh University, hosted by the Centre for Research into Families and Relationships. This focused on how emotion is gendered and how power is interacts with emotion in couple relationships. I subsequently began my lectureship here at Napier in August 2015 after a period of working on a zero hours contract while completing my PhD.
