Lecturer, Department for Health, Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Bath

I joined the Physical Cultural Studies Research Group in the Department for Health at University of Bath in the autumn of 2014.

Embracing an inter- and trans-disciplinary approach, I focus on issues concerning and related to the (in)active body, subjectivity and identity politics, urban governance, and popular cultural practices and representations.

I am committed to the critical contextualization of power and power relations as expressed in and through bodily practices, discourses and representations, structures and processes, identities and subjectivities, and spatialities. Particularly, I am interest in exploring through the mobilization of an array and theoretical and methodological tools, the ways in which peoples’ physical cultural practices (sport, physical activity, health/wellness, exercise) in every day life perhaps challenge, disrupt, resist, and reinforce relations of power, injustice, inequality across class, gender, race, ethnicity, and nations. Increasingly, I seek to inform and contribute to practices and policies as I engage them through research practices.
