I trained and worked as a therapy radiographer prior to completing my Masters in Health Research and my PhD in Science and Technology Studies (Lancaster). I have previously worked on research projects exploring working patterns of radiographers and the training of sonographers in the NHS. I have been a representative on the board for Lancaster University’s Centre for Science Studies since 2010 and the Centre for Mobilities Research since April 2013. I worked as a Senior Research Associate in Lancaster’s Sociology department before joining Lancaster Medical School as a lecturer in Social Sciences and also co-director of Year 3.
My research interests focus around technologically mediated practices drawing on Science and Technology Studies, Organisation Studies and Feminist Technoscience. I am interested in how practitioners generate knowledge, more recently looking at practices ‘on the move’. This feeds into my interests in accountability, responsibility and autonomy in practice.
