Research Interests

I am interested in the application of intersectionality theory in the fields of careers, inequality and diversity, in particular, the role of age/life course and how persisting norms intersect with other more dominant forms of inequality in UK organisations.

PhD Supervision

I would be interested in supervising future doctoral students in the general areas of:
