I joined Aston University in 2012. My PhD, completed in 2009 and awarded by the University of Nottingham, focused on clergy motherhood in the Church of England as well as male clergy spouses. I secured an ESRC Postdoctoral Research Fellowship to continue this research at Durham University in 2011-2012. I was also Research Fellow on the project, Religion, Youth and Sexuality: A Multi-faith Exploration (www.nottingham.ac.uk/sociology/rys). This focused on 18 to 25 year olds from a variety of faith backgrounds in order to understand attitudes and practices around sexuality and how this was negotiated in relation to religious tradition. A podcast about the research is available. I have recently undertaken a project on meaning-making around cathedral carol services.
