Personal profile

Biography

I joined the School in January 2019, after heading up University of Leeds' Centre for Interdisciplinary Gender Studies. I am a member of the Centre for Participatory Culture and the Centre for the Study of Music, Culture and Identity.

I research gender, big data and popular music. I am currently researching sexual violence at live music events and sexual violence in chart topping rock and metal lyrics (funded by BA/Leverhulme). My PhD (Centre for Women’s Studies, York) looked at representations and experiences of women hard rock and metal music fans. This is the subject of my book Gender, Metal and the Media: Women Fans and the Gendered Experience of Music (Palgrave), which I discussed with Laurie Taylor on Radio 4's 'Thinking Allowed'. My postdoc (Seeing Data: are good big data visualisations possible?, Leeds) explored how people engage with data visualisations and has produced a number of well-regarded articles including 'The Feeling of Numbers' in the journal Sociology.
