My research interests focus on popular funerary customs, past and present, and I’m interested in cemeteries as spaces (or places?) where death and dying are constructed, performed and contested. I’m a CDAS Visiting Research Fellow, Secretary of the Association for the Study of Death & Society, and Participation Officer and a Trustee of the Folklore Society. I am Researcher Development Manager at UWE Bristol, with particular responsibility for PGR researcher development and interests in research culture, academic writing and PGR wellbeing.
