My name is Fiona, and no, I am not that type of mistress, and certainly not that sort – I objected to being a Bachelor of Science so became an ‘Onerable Scientific Spinster, this then continued to Artistic Mistress and double Scientific Mistress.  I am an academic mistress and have no interest in either of the other types!


BSc (Hons) Social Policy, MA (Social Policy & Criminology), MSc (Social Research Methods) MSc (Forensic Psychology and Criminology) – all with the Open University.

My methodological interest leans towards discourse analysis, in particular, critical discourse analysis.

Research interests and wide and varied, but with a leaning towards medical sociology.  This does not stop me from being passionate about research being accessible to everyone.

Any photographs I use were taken by me!
