Biography

I graduated with a BA in Geography in 2012 from the University of Brighton, followed by an MA in Population Studies (Research Methodology) from the University of Liverpool in 2013. After graduating I worked at the University of Liverpool as Research Assistant on a collaborative project with the Health and Safety Executive. I have experience in both qualitative and quantitative methods and I am continuing to develop these skills with further training. I joined the Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research (CMI) later in 2013 to start my ESRC funded PhD research. I am also employed by the University of Manchester as a Teaching Assistant for undergraduate students.
