Activities per year
I am currently researching a PhD in English at the University of Strathclyde, funded by a University of Strathclyde Student Excellence Award (SEA). My thesis, Consuming Men: Masculinity, Meat and Myth in Literary Fictions from Mary Shelley to Ursula K. Le Guin, uses feminist ecological, vegetarian, vegan and human-animal studies theory to analyse masculinity, species and the consumption of the animal in retellings of the classical Prometheus myth in literary fiction from the publication of Frankenstein in 1818 to the present day.

Expertise & Capabilities
I previously held the position of National Lifelong Learning Development Worker at Glasgow Women's Library, where my responsibilities included the planning and delivery of workshops, seminars and conferences, creating films, podcasts, bibliographies and other learning resources and supporting the compilation and submission of funding applications and reports to funders. During my time at Glasgow Women's Library I took a lead on the Women in the Landscape project, focusing on women’s experiences of ecology, climate and the environment, and previously specialised in women's experiences of sectarianism and hate crime.
I volunteer as a tour guide on Glasgow Women's Library's Women's Heritage Walks, researching and discussing the hidden histories of women in Glasgow.
