I am a quantitative sociologist working in the Understanding Society Policy Unit. My research interests are ethnicity and migration; political behaviour and attitudes; civil society; and socioeconomic inequalities.

My current role includes: undertaking academic and non-academic research designed to meet the needs of policy makers and third-sector organisations; delivery oftrainings on using Understanding Society; involvement in developing knowledge exchange activities. Some of my current and recent projects include: investigating occupational downgrading after childbirth; investigating the impact of childcare prices on labour market outcomes; and investiigating the impact of housing circumstances on mental health and well-being.
