I joined AMBS in January 2016 as a Research Associate. Since then, I have worked on Alliance-funded research projects firstly with Professor David Holman and currently with Dr Gail Hebson in the Work & Equalities Institute. I have also worked with Professor Debra Howcroft on a project funded by the Swedish Research Council.
My work background is varied. I have worked in the UK and in North and Central America in the public sector and the voluntary sector, in roles covering human rights advocacy and environmental campaigning, anthropological fieldwork, project management and business administration.
My PhD thesis, awarded by the Open University Business School in 2015, was an ethnographic study of the phenomenon of staying silent in inter-organisational project group working.
Previous qualifications include an undergraduate degree from the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne (Combined Studies: social science and languages), a Masters degree from the LSE in Social Anthropology, and a Masters degree from Lancaster University in European Environmental Policy.
