Biography

I am a lecturer in sociology as part of the social sciences team at Edinburgh Napier University. My principal interests are in gender and sexuality, including research into couple relationships, emotion and sexual health education.

I completed my PhD in 2015 hosted by the Centre for Research into Families and Relationships (CRFR) at the University of Edinburgh. At present I am part of a short life working group at the Scottish Government developing key messages around the topics of Consent and Healthy Relationships.
