Overview

I am a PhD researcher at the Work and Equalities Institute (WEI) based at the Alliance Manchester Business School (AMBS).

My current research is focused on female workers using online labour platforms to find work. I am primarily interested in understanding the links between platform-based jobs and gender-based violence and harassment at work. My research, which is interdisciplinary by nature, examine whether working conditions for female workers are deteriorating through the study of a female-dominated occupation: domestic work. While my major focus is on gender-based violence and harassment at work related to the emergence of on-demand domestic work platforms, I am also interested in understanding individual and occupational aspects that make domestic workers more vulnerable to being exploited and discriminated against, as well as the risks to which they are exposed, the impact of negative work experiences in their lives and their individual and collective responses to it.
