I am a second year PhD student in the Department of Sociology, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. I have an MPhil in Sociology (Modern Society and Global Transformations) from the University of Cambridge and a BA (Hons) in Sociology from Warwick.
After working for a number of years in policy, press and public affairs roles I returned to academia to pursue a PhD exploring the links between women’s under-representation in local politics, organisational change, and the production of pro-women or feminist policy outcomes. As well as gender and politics, my broad research interests include gender and work, feminist theory and social theory.
I am an active member of the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender as part of the committee team for the Graduate Seminar Series and through my involvement with a project to create the Centre's first archive. I am involved with the student organising committee for the research network Connecting Research on Employment and Work. As a member of a Social Theory research group led by Dr. Michael Hammond and Dr. Milena Kremakova, I work on a project developing an interdisciplinary online resource for social science researchers wishing to advance their understanding of social theory.
