I am a higher education researcher with interests around women academics’ career experiences, academic identity development and belonging.
I completed my PhD at the Institute of Education at Sheffield Hallam University in 2018. I now work at the Careers and Advisory Centre as their Research and Evaluation Project Manager, and am also an Associate Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University.
My doctoral research explored the career aspirations of women doctoral students, focusing on how these shifted and changed during the PhD. This qualitative, longitudinal study aimed to understand why women may be discouraged from pursuing an academic career.
