Personal profile

Biography

I joined the University of Edinburgh in 2020 as Mildred Baxter Research Fellow in the Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society after working on NIHR-funded evaluations at the University of Hertfordshire. I hold a PhD in Sociology from the University of Manchester and an MA from the University of Nottingham. Since May 2022, I also hold a Research Fellowship at the University of Manchester, leading an funded project on dating apps and loneliness.

Current Research Interests

I am an interdisciplinary researcher interested in the interface between sexuality, health, memory and online/offline practices. I am currently working on a variety of projects focused on how gay men negotiate HIV risk and COVID-19 risk, people experience memories of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and use the internet for wellbeing during COVID-19. 

I have authored reports and papers on the impact of COVID-19 on LGBT+ people's lives and health and provided evidence to the UK Parliament on PrEP delivery nationwide. 

Qualifications

BA English Studies, 2016 (University of Oviedo)

MA Critical Theory and Cultural Studies, 2017 (University of Nottingham)

PhD Sociology, 2020 (University of Manchester)

Collaborative Activity

As a sociologist, I seek to understand how people experience their sexuality and sexual health, make decisions around healthcare, and seek support. I can deploy a wide range of research techniques to understand how services work and evaluate interventions. I have particular expertise in evaluating digital and remote care interventions for HIV testing, sexual health and social support targetted at LGBT+ people. 

I am interested in engaging with community partners and commercial stakeholders to evaluate service delivery during COVID-19 and develop new guidelines.
