I joined the Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE) while completing doctoral research on dimensions of new immigration in England at the Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research (CMIST). My main work in CoDE has focused on examining patterns of ethnic educational inequality and the spatial patterns of ethnic inequalities in education, employment, housing and health in England and Wales. I was also co-editor of the CoDE 'Dynamics of diversity: evidence from the 2011 Census’ Briefings series funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
I have previously worked as a Research Officer at the Migration and Border Analysis (MBA) Unit in the Home Office Science Directorate as part of an ESRC internship and held a research post at the Centre for Urban Policy Studies (CUPS) working on projects for the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) and the North West Development Agency (NWDA). I hold an MSc in Social Research Methods and Statistics from the University of Manchester and an MSc in Economics from Birkbeck College, University of London. I received a PHD in Social Statistics from the University of Manchester in 2014.
