Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests include sustainable consumption and second-hand economies, with a specific focus on the charity retail sector. My doctoral research explores the ambiguous status of charity shops in relation to the goal of sustainable resource use, examining the extent to which they are embedded in critical consumer cultures, and how the fundraising imperative of charity retailers influences their inclination and capacity to maximize the reuse of donated goods. I favour qualitative methods, particularly ethnographic ones, and am interested in approaches which allow close attention to the material and its interplay in social relations.
