Reader in Education with Psychology and Centre for Death and Society, University of Bath

I am an academic and author with a broad interest in human relationships across the lifespan. I'm equally interested in how relationships shape our existence and how they are themselves shaped by the cultural, societal, and institutional structures within which our lives play out. My work relates to psychology, sociology, and social sciences in a broad sense and I have explored experiences of relationships in a diverse range of people, including older people, foster families, unaccompanied asylum seeking children, and human-animal bonds.
