Having initially studied Social Policy as an undergraduate Sarah became immersed in the study of the social world, this served as the foundation for an unrelenting interest in social research which she pursues to this day. Sarah’s teaching and research interests are very much interwoven and are currently concerned with understanding and contextualizing domestic and sexual violence.
For Sarah, academia is a space within which she can make a contribution to society through education whilst continuing to seek new knowledge through her research. It is this combination of skills and the variety of the many elements of academic life which attracted Sarah to Higher Education. It is challenging and rewarding work which, through time in the classroom, creates a unique opportunity to unlock the same sense of academic curiosity in others.
