I first matriculated at the University of York as an undergraduate on the BA Sociology Hons programme (2011-2014). Before completing my final year, I was awarded the Bridge Scholarship (2015) for the MA in Social Research in the Department of Sociology. Whilst completing this programme I secured Economic and Social Research Council (+3) funding for a PhD in Sociology (2015-2018) supervised by Dr Merran Toerien and Dr Steph Lawler. In my thesis I use Conversation Analysis (CA) to investigate how social class is occasioned in situated, naturally-occurring forms of talk-in-interaction. An overview of my background in CA can be found in the American Sociological Association EMCA Newsletter (Spring 2016, Volume 8, Issue 4). Alongside my PhD, I am involved in basic and applied CA research in both ordinary and institutional settings and I maintain interests in ethnomethodology, science and technology studies, and classical and contemporary social theory. Since October 2014, I have operated as an administrator on the EMCA/CA Wiki and contribute regularly through their associated Twitter account (@EMCA_News).
