ǡѺ (2004)

I was re-appointed to Brunel in 2012, having previously worked there as a professor of sociology between 2003 - 2008. Between 2008 - 2012 I worked in the medical school at Queen Mary, University of London. Before all that I was in the sociology department at Goldsmiths, having had a career of researching and teaching in institutions of higher education around London, including several spells in the University of East London. I started out in educational research, having originally trained as a primary school teacher, but switched to health research in the 1980s. This varied career has given me the chance to use a wide variety of research methods on many different research projects, so that is something that I like to teach.
