Research Overview

I am currently working on two research projects into food security in Scotland and local food in Scotland. Previously I have conducted research into understanding food choices, Tibetan Buddhism in Scotland, student experience of further education and ecological social housing in Aberdeen.

I am interested in food in society, social theory and qualitative research methods.


Teaching Responsibilities

I have taught on a number of undergraduate courses in Sociology and the Social Sciences and I am currently teaching on a third year level World of Food course and contribute to a Masters in Public Health Nutrition. I was awarded a Fellowship of the Higher Education Authority in 2018.
