I am a Research Fellow at the School for Public Health at LSHTM. I studied anthropology at UCL and sexual health research at LSHTM, specialising in medical anthropology and the anthropology of gender and sexuality.
My PhD was an ethnographic account of ageing, femininity and sexuality amongst women in the UK that start dating again later in life. I am currently Associate Editor of the journal Anthropology & Medicine.
I am a seminar leader on Principles of Social Research (PSR), and am part of the Medical Anthropology and PSR distance learning team.
I am currently working on a in depth, qualitative project about welfare benefits and ageing in the UK, as part of the NIHR-funded School for Public Health Research programme in PHP. As part of this team I also contribute to the research surrounding the meaning and use of 'evidence' outside of academia and the health sector, particularly in local government settings.
