I am a PhD Candidate in Sociology at the University in Southampton. My research explores the ethics, values, and practices of Muslim, Jewish, and Christian vegans in the UK. I am interested in how religiosity intersects the vegan experience and how religion and culture are negotiated and reshaped in response to modern ethical crises.

My PhD is funded by the South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership who are in turn funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), part of UKRI (UK Research and Innovation).

My research interests include vegan studies, the sociology of religion, late modernity, the sociology of ethics, environmental sociology, lived religion, and anthropology.

I am a qualitative researcher and adopt an interpretivist epistemology in my research. In my PhD research, I made use of semi-structured qualitative interviews, app-based diaries methods, and virtual participant observation, whilst in my MSc dissertation, I employed a mixed methods approach using qualitative interviews and quantitative survey methods.

My supervisors are Dr Bindi Shah, Professor Emma Roe, and Dr Heidi Armbruster.
