Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a lecturer in the Department of Work, Employment and Organisation at Strathclyde Business School. My research interests lie in graduate transitions to employment, skill utilisation and job upgrading, and mixed methods research approaches. I teach across a range of areas related to my interests in Human Resource Management, organisational behaviour and research methods.

My background is in economics, area studies and employment research. Prior to taking up my current role, I was a Research Fellow at the Institute for Employment Research, University of Warwick, and an Early Career Fellow of the Warwick Institute of Advanced Study. Between 2016 and 2018 I was on part-time secondment as a Research Associate to Wales Public Services 2025 hosted by Cardiff Business School.

Teaching Interests

At WEO I teach on a range of courses, including Human Resource Management, organisational behaviour and research methods, specialising in skill development and utilisation, transitions to employment, graduate employment, labour markets, research methodology and statistical analysis.

Previously, I have taught introductory mathematical methods and quantitative economics at St Anne’s College, University of Oxford, public policy economics, inequality and labour markets, and research methods for the Department for Continuing Education, University of Oxford, and have supervised undergraduate students’ dissertations from the department of Economics, University of Warwick.

Research Interests

My main research interests are in graduate transitions to employment, skill utilisation and job upgrading, and mixed methods research approaches. I am especially interested in the inequalities in graduate transitions to employment, and in the role of skill development and skill utilisation in relation to graduate employment. My doctoral research was on graduates’ skill utilisation in small and large firms in the UK, and provides both a foundation and a departure point for my current work.

At present, I am working on a comparative research project on the role of work placements in graduate transitions to employment in the UK and Italy, taking into account national education and labour market contexts. My colleagues and I are exploring similarities and differences in the pathways to employment, who benefits and who is marginalised, and furthering the development of an international research network around this area (I am currently coordinating a small but growing unfunded international network on transitions to employment: https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/GRADUATE-TRANSITIONS).

Previously, I worked on a variety of projects related to employment and the labour market while at the Warwick Institute for Employment Research, including adults’ participation in training, wider benefits of higher education and diversity in the British screen industries. During my time at Wales Public Services 2025, I worked on public service financing, focusing on healthcare spend in Wales.
