I am a sociologist whose research has focused on the intersection of ageing, gender and sexualities. I have researched the lives of older LGBT people for over ten years and published books and articles related to that research.

My current research in examining the intersectional life course inequalities faced by LGBTQ people in four European countries.

Subjects: Sociology


I have been a full-time academic for just over ten years, having gained my doctorate from the University of Surrey in 2007. Since that time I have concentrated my research on ageing, gender and sexualities, with much of that research focused on the lives and inequalities faced by older LGBT people. I am currently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Sociology at the University of Surrey, where I am also Deputy Head of Department and Director of Learning and Teaching. I am passionate about the potential for Sociology to shed light on and challenge social inequalities and much of my research has a strong impact element.
