Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a current PhD student on the Gender Studies PhD programme at Strathclyde, that I joined in October 2021. I am also the Research Assistant on BA/Leverhulme small grant project on the use of Trigger Warnings in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences with Prof Karen Boyle (PI) and Dr Melanie McCarry (CoI).

Prior to starting my PhD I worked as a Research Assistant from 2020-2021 supporting the Pass the Mic project that focused on the representation of women of colour in Scottish news media with Professor Karen Boyle and Talat Yaqoob. I am also a graduate of the university's MSc in Applied Gender Studies programme (graduated in 2019).

My current research focus is on scandal and reputation in media representations of celebrity sexual assault cases.
