Senior Lecturer

I am a qualitative sociologist whose doctoral research explored the cultural repertoires of sexual intimacy and the ways in which material and symbolic resources are mobilised in the construction and staging of intimate encounters. The interest in classed and gendered identities developed with work on the Glass Cliff and Fair-Trade Consumerism. Most recently, my research foci have included professional trajectories and shifts, especially in biomedicine, biotechnology and digital forensics, the governance of scientific innovation and local negotiations of regulation in relation to clinical applications of stem cell research, the use of forensic DNA technologies  in police practice and the develoment and application of digital forensics in the investigation of crime.
