Personal profile

Research interests

My research examines the workplace as the site where gender, and associated inequalities, are reproduced. I am particularly interested in how gender intersects with other categories of difference resulting in complex patterns of (dis)advantage. My current projects include:

  • In work poverty in Scotland with Dr James Richards
  • Gender and parenting in academia - a cross national study between Scotland and the UK with Professor Jemina Napier and Dr Kate Huppatz
  • Gender and migration in academic careers
  • Disability and academic careers
  • Corporate board composition

Key Research Words/Phrases

Gender, inequality, intersectionality, feminism, disability, professions, poverty, posthumanism
