Angharad Butler-Rees

I am a Research Fellow in the Department of Sociology, working alongside Dr Stella Chatzitheochari on the Leverhulme study Educational Pathways and Work Outcomes of Disabled Young People in England. Previously, I have worked as a Research Fellow at the Centre for Research in Inclusion at the University of Southampton, where I undertook research into digital accessibility. Prior to this, I undertook my doctoral studies within the Department of Geography and Environmental Science at the University of Southampton. As part of my doctoral studies, I researched disability activism in response to austerity utilising both participatory and biographical methods.

I have a longstanding interest in disability rights, social justice and inclusion. I have previous research experience of working with various disability charities and advocacy organisations, including UCAN Productions, the National League of the Blind and Disabled (NLBD) and Leonard Cheshire Disability.
