After graduating with a BSc in Psychology I worked in various roles in the manufacturing and service industries before undertaking my MSc at Manchester Business School in Organisational Psychology. I subsequently undertook an MRes in Qualitative Research Methods and a PhD in Organisational Psychology that focused on exploring how dual-earner couples make decisions when faced with incidents of work–family conflict.
Prior to joining The University of Liverpool I worked as a lecturer in Organisational Behaviour at The University of Bolton as well as teaching Research Methods and Personal and Professional Development on the Global MBA at Manchester Business School.
I am an active researcher with a particular interest in work–life decision-making, flexible working and other work-life initiatives, gender and equality, and more generally in the use of innovative qualitative research methods. I am also enthusiastic about teaching, particularly in the areas of Leadership, Diversity, Equality and Qualitative Research Methods for Business and Management.
I am an active member of the British Psychological Society, the British Academy of Management and the Work-Family Researchers Network.
