My research focuses on the social and cultural history of home in post-war suburban Scotland. My work examines the impact of gender, consumerism and class on social relations and wellbeing. I am currently working on a monograph of my thesis research. I am experienced in oral history, material cultures, visual sources and heritage sector. Since finishing my PhD thesis at the University of Glasgow in 2016, I have worked on heritage projects with Scottish Women’s Aid, National Autistic Society and Glasgow Women’s Library. In 2017, I published a short story as part of collection, Voices from the Belvidere, based on my research into a female surgeon at the Belvidere Fever Hospital, Glasgow in 1918. I have also taught at University of Glasgow and Glasgow Caledonian University on Scottish History and Health History.
I am currently working as a Reserach Associate with Prof Arthur McIvor on a oral history project collecting stories from the Lost Villages of East Ayrshire.
