I am a labour market & welfare state researcher and a Senior Lecturer (Associate 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.
Recently I've been awarded the ESRC Future Research Leader's Award to carry out research on the relationship between working-time flexibility and work-family conflict, and the importance of contexts.
