Lottie is an ESRC-funded PhD student on the UBEL Doctoral Training Programme. Her research will produce action-oriented research on UK policy and community engagement on forced marriage, and evidence on best practice for initiatives in UK schools which strengthen girls’ agency.

Her research interests concern the relational elements and everyday enactments of gender, violence, and patriarchal practices that regulate young people’s sexual behaviours.
