I am Associate Dean (International) for the
I carried out my undergraduate and postgraduate studies at
At Salford I have taught French language, translation and interpreting and contemporary history and society modules, including French business and marketing subjects. My teaching experience is across a range of levels, from undergraduate to masters.
In 2012-13 I am teaching gender, work and employment on the Level 4 module Social Divisions and Inequality.
My research covers a cross-disciplinary field including Sociology (family and work), Management Studies, Industrial Relations and Area Studies. After publishing for a number of years on trends and practices in working time and women’s employment, my research interests are now in the area of comparative gender relations and systems, fatherhood and the reconciliation of work and family, particularly as they relate to Britain and France. I am very pleased to supervise theses in related areas.
I am Associate Editor of Gender, Work and Organization and referee for Sociology, International Journal of Management Reviews, International Journal of Sociology and Social Policy, British Journal of Industrial Relations.
