Sarah's main research interests are based in critical feminist psychology and an intersectional approach that considers gender, class, race and ethnicity, power, and identity. She is particularly interested in representations of women in the media and experiences of mothering.
Sarah's current research includes a critical analysis of current debates about childhood obesity. She is examining how women experience blame for their children's weight, and how childhood obesity interventions may target working class families and families of colour in different ways.
