I am a Research Associate at Sheffield Hallam University in the Department of Psychology, Sociology & Politics. In my role, I support research projects from across the Department's disciplines, particularly in Sociology, Politics, Social Policy and Social Psychology.
I am currently finishing my PhD which explored women's experiences of pornography using participatory research methods.
I joined Sheffield Hallam University as a Research Assocaite in December 2018. Prior to this I was studying full time for my PhD at the University of Sheffield. I will be submitting my thesis in the Spring of 2019. I have an MA in Social Research Methods and a BA in History and Politics, both from the University of Sheffield.
My research interests include the sociological study of sex, sexuality and pornography. I am also interested in social research methods, and in particular the methods to have emerged from Feminist, Disability Studies and Participatory research paradigms.
