Research & Education

I am a PhD student at the Univeristy of Bristol's School of Policy Studies funded by ESRC's research centre on Micro-Social Change (MiSoC), and supervised by Professor Esther Dermott and Professor Susan Harkness.  

My research focuses on how gender and family structure relate to poverty, social mobility, and larger inequity in the UK population. With particular focus given to labour market and mental health outcomes, I am interested in applying quantitative longitudinal models to produce valid, causal inferences that can inform larger policy. 

I hold a MSc in Policy Research from the University of Bristol, a G.C.H.E. in Statistics from University of Sheffield, and a Scottish M.A. in Psychology from Univeristy of St Andrews.
