SueSue Chowdhry

Sue Chowdhry is a PhD student in the School of Nursing Studies at the University of Edinburgh. Her background in public health nursing and counselling has inspired her current interest in sociologies of the body and narrative research. She graduated from the University of Dundee in 2012 with an MSc in Applied Professional Studies. Her previous research critically explored the ways that female further education lecturers use emotion in relation to student achievement. Sue’s current research explores the embodied experience of pregnancy, childbirth and early motherhood with women with ‘larger’ bodies in the context of maternal health care. Along with her PhD study, Sue teaches on health care and counselling courses within further education. She also undertakes tutorials and teaching with undergraduates and postgraduates at the University of Edinburgh and Heriot Watt Universities.
