Research Overview

My research interests sit at the intersection of the sociology of consumption and economic geography, informed particularly by the diverse economies framework. My doctoral research, also conducted here at Lancaster, focused on 'alternative' food geographies in a context of economic austerity. Consequently, I have ongoing interests in the geographies of food, social and political change, sociology of the environment and feminist political economy (particularly with reference to the Anthropocene and responses to it).

I also completed my MA Sociological Research here at Lancaster and, prior to that, completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Leeds.
