I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the School of Social Science and Public Policy at Keele University. My interests are in how social change happens and how it shapes, and is shaped by, what ordinary people do in their everyday lives. More specifically, I'm interested in what this means for environmental sustainability and the consumption of resources like water, energy and food.
At Keele I currently work on the EU Horizon2020-funded collaborative project, 'SafeConsume'. This project seeks to better understand domestic food practices with the ultimate aim of helping reduce risk of foodborne illness. I previously worked in the Department of Geography at the University of Sheffield on the ESRC Nexus Network-funded 'Reshaping the Domestic Nexus' project, and before that in the Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research at Sheffield Hallam University.
