Research interests

My research interests are in the sociology of public health, and in contributing sociological perspectives to health services research.  Most recently, my research has focused on: mobility, transport systems & health; questions of how evidence travels from one setting to another; methodological development; and health professions. I am co-PI of the Social Sciences and Urban Public Health Institute (SUPHI),   

I co-edit the journal Critical Public Health, and co-author the textbook Qualitative Methods for Health Research.

My undergraduate degree was in Anthropology, and I have an MSc and PhD in sociology as applied to medicine. I am a fellow of the PLuS Alliance.
