About me

I joined the University of Stirling as a lecturer in sociology in August 2016. Prior to this I was at the University of Sheffield, where I completed a PhD in the Department of Sociological Studies and worked as a research associate. I have an MA in folklore from Memorial University of Newfoundland and a BA in history from the University of York. 

My PhD took an ethnographic approach to how residents of older people's homes become at home (or not) from a material culture perspective. I am currently interested in future time in the context of older age, and how time is perceived and experienced differently at different stages of the life course.
