My principal research interests cohere around the sociology of the body; embodiment and the senses; health and wellbeing; identity and identity work; sociological & feminist phenomenology; autoethnographic & autophenomenographic approaches.  I enjoy (mostly!) grappling with the sometimes uneasy nexus of sociology and phenomenology.
