PhD student, Associate Lecturer

Research Overview

I completed my first degree in Sociology at the University of Leeds before coming to Lancaster. I finished my MA in Sociological Research in September 2014, with a dissertation focusing on the lived experience of time.

My doctoral research explores the politics of 'alternative' food in a context of economic austerity. More generally, my work is primarily informed by contemporary social and political theory and human geography, especially Italian autonomism, with particular interest in the work of Zygmunt Bauman, Theodor Adorno, Paul Virilio, Franco Berardi and Christian Marazzi.
