Susan is a doctoral researcher at the ESRC Centre for Research on Socio-Cultural Change (CRESC) based at The University of Manchester.
Her inter-disciplinary research investigates the politics of well-being. She argues there are differences between everyday narratives of well-being, and those told by individuals driving the agenda to measure well-being, and that this has implications for policy-making.
Susan's first book chapter: 'Measuring National Well-being: What Matters to You? What Matters to Who?' will be published in 'Cultures of Well-being: Method, Place, Policy' this year by Palgrave.
