Lisa’s main research interests lie between the broad areas of sociology, cultural and urban studies.

She is particularly interested in the ways in which knowledge is produced within the academy and the ways in which that knowledge, in turn, shapes the modes of culture and social relationships that are possible both within and out with academia. The relative absence of time within academic discourses of the city was the subject of her PhD research in this area and time remains a major focus of her work.

In addition to trying to understand the routes through which a natural view of time pervades urban studies and social science disciplines, she simultaneously explores innovative methods and practices of making knowledge in order that her work has the potential to enact a more heterogeneous ontological and temporal politics in its process.

Since completing her PhD in 2014 Lisa has worked on various projects, including the development of an ESRC bid on the subject of social precarity and an evaluation of the GP referral scheme offered by Police Scotland designed to support victims of domestic abuse. Her current role within the SCCJR sees her work with Professor Michele Burman and Dr Oona Brooks-Hay in the evaluation of a new National Project which has been rolled out by Rape Crisis Scotland, involving the delivery of an advocacy service provided to those who have experienced rape or serious sexual assault.”
