My first degree was in sociology and social anthropology and I have a PhD in the sociology of health from the University of London. Before coming to LSHTM (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine) in 1999 I held posts teaching Sociology at Middlesex University and at Guy's King's and Thomas’s School of Medicine and Dentistry (GKT).

I also have a Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy and am a UKCP accredited practitioner.

Teaching

I have over 30 years experience of teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students and I currently supervise several research degree students who are working in a wide range of areas. Along with Joanna Schellenberg I am Co-Director of the DrPH Programme, a Professional Doctorate in Public Health. I am also Co-Module Organiser with Neil Spicer for the Sociological Approaches to Heath module.

I am co-author with Judith Green of Qualitative Methods for Health Research, fourth edition (London:Sage 2018) and Series Editor, with Rosalind Plowman, of the Understanding Public Health series of textbooks published by Open University Press.

 

Research

My research interests are primarily in qualitative research into aspects of ‘identity’, e.g. ethnicity, gender, disability and sexuality and in the sociology of the body and I am interested in the intersection of mental health with public health and health promotion.
