My teaching and research interests lie in the fields of health and social history. I have keen interest in the history of disability, the history of industrial injury and rehabilitation, the history of disability sport and oral history. I teach a number of undergraduate courses relating to my research interests and am an active member of the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare and the Scottish Oral History Centre.
