About me

I am a Lecturer in Heritage and Programme Director of the MSc Heritage at the University of Stirling. I joined the Division of History and Politics as Lecturer in Heritage in June 2018. Prior to this, I was a Research Fellow in the Department of Sociology at the University of York, where I worked on the Profusion-theme of the AHRC-funded Heritage Futures research programme (https://heritage-futures.org). I continue my Heritage Futures involvement as an Affiliated Researcher, and am also linked to the Centre for Anthropological Research on Museums and Heritage in Berlin (http://www.carmah.berlin/people/).

Trained as a Social Anthropologist (PhD Manchester, 2011), I have worked on a range of interdisciplinary projects that span my interests in organisational anthropology, contemporary museum practice and theory, cultural heritage, and ethnographic methodologies (including the sensory, visual, and creative knowledge-exchange).

I am a Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute, and a member of the Association of Social Anthropologists, Museums Association, Museum Ethnographers Group, and the Association of Critical Heritage Studies. After several years as Reviews Editor, I now sit on the Editorial board for 'Anthropology in Action: Journal for Applied Anthropology in Policy and Practice'.
