Research Fellow, Faculty of Social Sciences
I am a sociologist with research interests in agricultural technology adoption, the social and ethical impacts of agricultural technologies, relationships between humans and the more-than-human world, and the environment. I received a BSc (Hons) in Environmental Science and an MSc in Science Communication and Environmental Decision Making from the Open University. I received my PhD in Sociology in 2019 from the University of Warwick with a thesis entitled 'The Online Genetically Modified Food Debate: Scientific Expertise and Alternative Knowledges'.
