I studied Social Anthropology at the University of Edinburgh and after graduating did an MA in Visual Anthropology at the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology, University of Manchester. I then did a PhD in Social Anthropology at Goldsmith's College, University of London, which was funded by the ESRC. My PhD was a ‘sound ethnography’ of the auditory culture of a London hospital. During an ESRC Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Cambridge I was able to write up this research as a book entitled Hearing and the Hospital: Sound, Listening, Knowledge and Experience (Sean Kingston Publishing). I was a Teaching Fellow in the Department of Sociology and Philosophy at the University of Exeter between 2009 and 2011, and joined the department as a Lecturer in Anthropology in 2012.
