Personal profile

Biography

I am a lecturer in Sociology who joined the University in September 2021 following a postdoctoral research position within the Widening Participation Evaluation Team at Oxford Brookes University. Prior to this I was a Doctoral and Associate Tutor at the University of Sussex alongside my PhD. My own doctoral research, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, explored the ways in which first-generation students navigate their educational journey towards Master's degrees and how social inequalities shape these pathways. More broadly my research interests encompass inequalities within Higher Education and the labour market, with particular attention to social class, gender and their intersections.

Prior to working within the sector, I was a Research Fellow at the Institute for Employment Studies, working on a range of research projects and evaluations for UK Government Departments and bodies, EU Directorates and third sector organisations.

Theorising Social Justice (L5 and L6), whilst I also teach on Gender and Sexuality (L5 and L6), Developing Your Sociological Imagination (L4), Research Design and Analysis (L4), Doing Sociological Research (L5) and Theorising Social Life (L4).

In addition, I am a tutor and supervisor on the Doctorate in Education (EdD), with particular expertise around what facilitates and hampers different educational trajectories and decision-making.
