Researcher, University of Bath

I am a researcher focussing on how spatial inequalities of class and race combine to produce particular forms of structural educational inequality.

I recently submitted my ESRC-funded PhD in geography at King's College London, and am now a researcher on the ESRC-funded project, Geographies of Higher Education: Spatial and social mobilities.

My interests lie at the intersection of sociology, geography and history and the central theme running through my work is how structures and experiences of power and inequality in education are reproduced over time and through different local and regional geographies.

My PhD examined how long-term regional inequalities continue to shape the geography of young peoples' post-16 to higher education trajectories. Specifically, it focussed on disentangling London-specific middle-class and elite ‘circuits of education’ from broader national socio-spatial patterns of social reproduction through the school system.
