My PhD research was based at SOAS, University of London. I also have an MA in Disability Studies from the University of Leeds, Centre for Disability Studies/School of Sociology and Social Policy.

My work on disability and Christian churches involved primary research with thirty disabled Christians, as well as background research into ideologies of disability in churches, and how these relate to concepts of healing, normalcy and the body.
