As a member of the School of Social and Political Sciences and the Institute of Health and Wellbeing, her research centres on developing understandings of how people can develop and sustain their health and wellbeing outside conventional health care settings, with a particular interest in (feminist) research methodologies, visual methods and material culture, gendered inequalities, issues around social justice, alternative moralities and ‘othering’, and the health of women, children and their families.

Her past research includes collaborative projects exploring: smoking and second-hand smoke with parents of young children and also with the British Army; health and health care for people with depression; and the links between engagement with the arts and improved mental health and wellbeing. Current multidisciplinary projects include: HORN (One Health Network for the Horn of Africa) and COSTAR (Community- based Sociotherapy Adapted for Refugees).
