Research overview

I am interested in social class inequalities and education and am currently co-investigator (Lancaster P.I.) on the Leverhulme funded Paired Peers project with Prof. Harriet Bradley and colleagues, which builds upon my work at the University of Bristol. This research spans a seven year period from 2010 to 2017 and focusses on the experiences of working-class and middle-class young people as they make their way through undergraduate programs at  two different universities in the same city, and into life beyond graduation.

My specific research interests are in classed and gendered identities and the impact of education on the maintenance and transformation of people's ways of being.

PhD supervision

I am interested in supervising PhDs which connect with any of the following areas: Gender inequalities in education, specifically identity issues in young people’s educational transitions; Higher Education and widening participation, conceptualised broadly to consider access, experience and transitions from university; Social-class; Social mobility; Bourdieu; Theorising masculinities; Labour market transitions; Young people’s identity construction (including class, gender, race, ethnicity, locality, nationality, migration, religion; Developing visual methodologies).
