Projects per year
I am interested in how inequalities are produced and reproduced in society, particularly from a gender/feminist perspective. I am currently working on the Leverhulme-funded project 'Glasgow Women's Library: A Transformative Servicescape' at the University of Strathclyde, looking at how service spaces have the potential to ameliorate consumer vulnerability.
I completed my PhD in 2014 at the University of Glasgow. My thesis analysed constructions of normative femininity in Russian society and culture through an analysis of women's magazines and their readers.
From 2014-2020 I worked on various projects studying how migrants from former state socialist countries have made themselves socially, economically, personally and culturally secure in Scotland. This was chiefly on the ESRC-funded project 'Social Support and Migration in Scotland' (SSAMIS).
