Personal profile

I am a PhD student at Royal Holloway’s Human Geography Department, where I am funded by the SeNSS ESRC consortium. My doctoral research project, ‘Northerners in London: Englishness, place and mobility’, is being supervised by Professor Phil Crang at RHUL and Professor Ben Rogaly at the University of Sussex. My research interests are in nationality, culture and identity; the English North-South divide; and transregional migration within England. Through researching the identities and experiences of Northerners who have migrated to London, I aim to contribute to understandings of issues of migration and locality and how they play into the formation of national identities and cultural distinctions.

My background is in the Social Sciences. I completed my MA in Social Research at Goldsmiths College in September 2017, where I was awarded the Goldsmiths Masters Scholarship and the Goldsmiths Sociology Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement, and I graduated from the University of York in 2014 with a First with Distinction in Sociology. I maintain my links with Goldsmiths through the podcast Surviving Society, which I run with Goldsmiths PhD students Chantelle Lewis and Tissot Regis. We aim to contribute to public sociology by discussing current affairs, society and our everyday experiences from a sociological perspective.
