Academic Background

 

I graduated with a BA Sociology with a Specialism in Gender Studies in 2012 from the University of Warwick, and then went on to study an MA in Gender and International Development. My masters dissertation focused on the political economy of aid becoming more polarised as global security concerns and global trade reform influence the purposes and practice of aid.

 

My Research

 

I am currently in the second year of my ESRC-funded PhD, exploring gender inequality issues in the access to and control of water as a productive resource for agriculture.

I am jointly supervised by Professor Caroline Wright and Professor Carol Wolkowitz.

 
My research interests include gender and development; gender and migration; feminist methodologies; the politics of ethical consumption; embodiment, gender and the labour process; and gender and employment.
 
 

Teaching

During the first year of my PhD I taught on the undergraduate module Transformations: Gender, Reproduction and Contemporary Society. This year I will be teaching the postgraduate modules, Gender Analysis and Development Practice, and Sex, Gender, Power at Work.
 
 

Personal Interests

In my spare time I play drums in an indie rock band, cook (my specialities are Japanese and Cuban food), volunteer at a family refuge centre, and restore vintage clothing and antiques.
 
I like to consider myself fairly active in the graduate community here at Warwick. I regularly attend graduate seminars and events, am on the Postgraduate SSLC committee, and a member of several student societies.
 
 

News and events that spark my interest

Students are right to march against the markets. Why can't education be free?

After the 2008 crash, the most sensible reform would have been to make the financial system more like education, not vice versa

Why it’s important to prove that ‘small’ can be flexible

Why do people still believe that small businesses can’t provide the flexibility that so many working mothers want? It’s time to throw out the stereotypes!
