Her own research interests are on disability, specifically Deaf sport (athletics).  This interest arose from competing as an International heptathlete and upon retiring learnt British Sign Language and then volunteered as a coach for UK Deaf Sport for over 12 years. This afforded her to travel abroad for three consecutive Deaflympic competitions.
