During my time in practice I continued to study and took a postgraduate Diploma in Women's Studies at what was then Sheffield Polytechnic, and an MA in Housing Studies from the University of York, as well as various short courses with the Open University and the Workers' Educational Association.
In 2005 I changed career and came to work at Sheffield Hallam University. At first my main focus was on teaching housing law at both undergraduate and postgraduate level but I now teach more widely within the department.
I teach on the Geographies of the City module, and am particularly interested in gentrification.
I teach on undergraduate and postgraduate modules in geography, planning and regeneration.
