I joined LUBS in September 2010 having previously worked as a lecturer at the Liverpool Law School (2010) and having extensive experience working as a researcher (at the University of Liverpool , 2007-2010 and at the University of Leeds 2003-2007).
My research explores aspects of EU and national employment law and policy relating in particular to gender equality, mobility, highly skilled and fixed-term employment. Through a series of empirical socio-legal research projects I have investigated law and policy in a number of settings. I have developed specific expertise in the area of human resource management within the Higher Education sector in the area of fixed-term employment.
My research approach is interdisciplinary and aims to bring together legal and policy analysis with qualitative social research. I also have experience of working collaboratively on cross national research projects.
