Department of Sociological Studies
Sarah joined the Department of Sociological Studies in 2017, having previously been based within the School of Health & Related Research at the University of Sheffield from 2013. Prior to that, she worked at Sheffield Hallam University and London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and spent extended periods of time living and researching in India and Bangladesh.
Sarah’s work lies at the intersection of sociology, social policy and public health, with the aim of understanding and addressing the social and political determinants of health and wellbeing. Her work has particularly focused on health inequalities linked to migration, ethnicity and gender, and the processes of identification and in/exclusion operating at policy, practice and community levels that shape health-related experiences and outcomes. Her work also includes a focus on understanding the perspectives of service users and improving the fit between provision/initiatives and needs within complex systems.
A parallel body of work explores the ethics and science of researching race/ethnicity and health. Projects have focused on a range of health topics, particularly reproductive health. Much of Sarah’s work involves close collaboration with statutory and third sector organisations, as well as partnerships with community-based groups and local people. Her research is international, with recent projects taking place in UK, Malawi, Ghana, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Currently, Sarah leads the cross-faculty Health Equity and Inclusion Research Group and is engaged in work under the umbrella of the national UK NIHR National School for Public Health Research.

Sarah has supervised 11 students to successful completion, including both UK and international students. She welcomes enquiries from prospective students interested in investigating the broad linkages between migration, race/ethnicity and health and the gendered influences on health and wellbeing. She is particularly interested to supervise projects focused on South Asia and/or British Asian populations, poverty and reproductive health. Sarah can support a range of methodological approaches.
Current students (based across Sociological Studies, ScHARR and AUPMC):
- Christy Braham - Health navigators and migrant women's health needs (University of Sheffield fellowship).
- Rebecca Mawson - General practice (primary healthcare) contributions to tackling inequalities in sexual and reproductive health.
- Christie Garner - Children's perspectives on the Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities Programme (In collaboration with the Race Equality Foundation; White Rose Doctoral Training Centre fellowship)
- Natalie Bennett - Neighbourhood diversity and mental wellbeing (funded by NIHR School for Public Health Research)
