I am a Lecturer in Education, having joined the Graduate School of Education in 2018. My research interests centre on the themes of gender and social class inequalities in education, which I study from a sociological perspective. I gained my PhD at Exeter in 2017. My thesis explored young women’s experiences whilst studying either a male-dominated STEM or female-dominated arts/humanities discipline at a high-performing British university, with a particular focus on their negotiations of academic achievement. This was an ESRC-funded project which adopted a qualitative longitudinal multiple case study design.
After gaining my PhD, I was employed as a postdoctoral researcher on a number of small-scale research projects being conducted within the Graduate School of Education. These projects have had a variety of foci, but all concern themes of inclusion/exclusion in compulsory and higher education. I have a particular interest in qualitative research methods, including biographical interviews, focus group interviews, and diary methods. I am also trained in systematic literature review methodology and have conducted quantitative and qualitative systematic reviews.
