Profile Summary

 

I am a social anthropologist and lecturer in Social Work on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
 
My research interests in reproductive anthropology, reproductive health rights, maternal identities, women in social movements in Latin America (predominantly in Mexico), Human Rights in Childbirth and alternative pedagogies.
 
Coming from an applied social anthropology background, I have a qualitative approach to research utilising participant centred methodologies that promote the voice of those who are marginalised. This particular approach is also devoted to making the dissemination of material accessible to all, particularly children, young people, speakers of other languages and those without formal education.
 
I am a qualified social worker with a UK practice background in Youth Outreach and Drug Misuse Work, Youth Custody Liaison, Peer Support Training, Health Promotion and Young People Leaving Care.
 
I have also worked extensively in Chiapas, Mexico with women and children affected by HIV/AIDS, human rights and survivors of armed conflict, community based education, action research and fair access to reproductive health provision.
 

My PhD thesis is titled: 'Becoming (M)other: political economy and maternal transition in urban                                                       Chiapas'
