Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellow and Lecturer in Environmental Chemistry, University of Bristol
My research is driven by a passion to address key questions surrounding the origins and fate of human and agricultural wastes, particularly in relation to their delivery from land to water bodies. This interest has grown out of my MSci degree in Geography, PhD and postdoctoral research in the fields of catchment hydrochemistry and molecular organic geochemistry.
My research to date has combined biogeochemical and hydrological approaches and has investigated the molecular composition, transformation and transport of organic matter by water and sediment flows. My Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellowship focuses on important emerging scientific questions concerning the fate and transport of plastic-derived compounds and plastic degradation products in agriculture. Using a combination of cutting-edge chemical analytical techniques in conjunction with data modelling provides exciting opportunities for the exploration of agriculture's impact on our environment.
More broadly I have research interests in the transport and fate of pollution, (including plastics and bioplastics) and nutrients in the terrestrial environment.
Senior Lecturer in Law, University of York
I've been awarded an ESRC 'Future Research Leader' grant, with which I'm PI on the EU Rights Project, www.eurightsproject.org.uk - working with EU migrants, Citizens Advice Services, and other advice agencies around the country, providing an advice and advocacy service while conducting an ethnography on the administrative and legal problems encountered. I have documented the effects of the recent welfare changes targeting EU migrants.
The project was described by reviewers as 'groundbreaking', 'tremendously innovative', 'strikingly original' and said 'the applicant’s background makes her possibly the only person of her generation in a position to credibly offer the opportunity to develop this methodology in this kind of context: access to civil justice, in supranational contexts’.
Having volunteered and worked in Citizens Advice Bureaux for over thirteen years, and specialised in EU legal research for eleven years, I have practical as well as academic expertise in UK welfare law, EU law, (particularly EU social law - welfare, free movement, citizenship and equal treatment), human rights law, equality and non-discrimination law (especially disability), the rights of carers, and child poverty.
I've been appointed an 'analytical expert' on the EU Commission's Free Movement and Social Security Coordination network, producing reports and giving litigation advice and suggestions to the Commission. I am also joint cases editor for the Journal of Social Security Law.
My work has been published in key international journals, such as the European Law Review, the Common Market Law Review, the Maastricht Journal of International and Comparative Law, and the Journal of Social Welfare and Family Law.
I've communicated about my research through various media, including the Today Programme on Radio 4, BBC Inside Out, and BBC Breakfast. I have given various public talks, including at the YorkTalks 2016, https://youtu.be/Iz-dY3g-ZAI and in an Open Course lecture series on Law, Government and the Public, 2015.
My PhD in Law (Liverpool) was funded by the AHRC, and focussed on free movement, equal treatment and EU citizenship; during this I took part in two research projects on retirement migration funded by the Spanish Ministry for Employment & Social Affairs and Age Concern. These looked at the access to welfare services for post-retirement EU migrants, particularly UK nationals abroad. My LLM (Leeds) research involved study of the attempts to produce an EU constitution. My work is inherently interdisciplinary; my first degree was a BA in Social & Political Sciences, (Cambridge).

I am a Senior Lecturer in Social Policy in the Department of Applied Social Science at Lancaster University. I am also a member of the Centre for Disability Research (CeDR). My research interests include social security, income maintenance and labour market policy and their implications for disabled people.
My main current research interests are concerned with analysing contemporary and historical changes in income maintenance and labour market policy. I am interested in the ways in which such policies are shaped by concerns with groups in the population that are deemed to be 'problematic', such as lone mothers and young people, and the ways in which income maintenance and labour market policies are held to be more important because of their macro-economic benefits, rather than their social benefits.
I am currently engaged in research at the National Archives which is focusing upon the introduction of Family Income Supplement in 1971 and how one of the guiding principles - that market wages should not be subsidised by the state - which had shaped social security policy making from the introduction of the Poor Law Amendment Act, was overcome by policy makers in the 1970s.
More directly related to criminology, I am interested in the press reporting of crime, particularly the reporting of sexual offences and the ways in which groups in the population (most notably black and working class men) are constructed as sex offenders.
Associate lecturer in Comedy, Bath Spa University
I teach comedy writing for BBC Writersroom, Bath Spa University and the British Library. I also run online and in person comedy writing classes that anyone can join.
