Personal profile


I am Associate Professor of Sociology in the Department of Social Sciences. My research broadly seeks to readdress the relative lack of prominence of sociological studies of domestic life and experience. My edited collection 'Gender and Consumption' with Prof Lydia Martens (Keele University) brought together feminist academics working in the field of domestic consumer economies, while my doctoral research echoed this focus on gender and consumption by producing one of the first studies of domestic routines and rituals of gambling. This work informed my sole-authored monograph 'Gender, Class and the Gambling Experience', shortlisted for the BSA Philip Abrams Memorial Prize. In addition to my work on gambling, my work examines the social and cultural history of a variety of everyday consumption practices, including catalogues, home-baking, shopping malls and department stores. Most recently, I am collaborating with Prof Jo Littler (City University) on research exploring the popular appeal of 'cleanfluencing' and with Prof Sarah Childs (Royal Holloway) and Rupa Huq, MP on an online symposium and forthcoming edited collection on the topic of gender and COVID_19. On-going funded research includes an ESRC grant for a project exploring gambling and households (RES-000-22-4314). The project established a major new directive on gambling at Mass Observation Archive. I sit on the editorial board of Sociology, the flagship journal of the BSA. I am on the Executive Board of the European Sociological Association Consumption Research Network and co-convenor of the BSA Consumption Study Group. From 2020 I am External Examiner for the Sociology degree programme at the London School of Economics (LSE). At Northumbria, I am Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the Department of Social Sciences.
