I am a disabled PhD student and senior lecturer in Education at Sheffield Hallam University. I course lead two courses – Education Studies and Education with Autism, Disability and SEN. My PhD topic is disabled people and self-harm with a particular focus on looking at self-harm from a disability studies perspective.
I am interested in all areas of social justice, often using twitter as an outlet for my activism. I am a proud disabled person and I campaign for disabled people to be treated fairly in society and to eradicate negative stereotypes.
