I am interested in how genders intersect with other aspects of our identities, particularly life course and sexualities.
My research background is within qualitative research and I am passionate about teaching within this area, particularly feminist methodologies and ethics.
I am interested in exploring the intergenerational impacts of different types of crisis on gendered experiences. Within this, I take a broad view of crisis from the perspective of those who have survived catastrophe themselves, including 'natural' disaster, conflict and violence.
I am interested in understanding the specific experiences of young people who experience a disaster in their youth, particularly young adults rather than children.
This research seeks to explore how women at different stages in their lives and careers experienced the 2018 UCU-USS strikes. I am currently recruiting participants to take part in a semi-structured interview and/or a focus group about their experiences.
