I am a labour market & welfare state researcher and Reader (Professor) in Sociology and Social Policy, at the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research, a part of the University of Kent, UK.
My research interest lies in explaining work-life balance and labour market insecurities of individuals through working conditions and welfare state institutions in a comparative perspective. I am also interested in gender inequalities within the labour market and in the household.
I am currently working on a ESRC funded project that examines flexible working, its prevalent and its outcomes on a wide range of issues including work-family conflict
