Projects per year
I joined Strathclyde Business School under the Chancellor’s Fellowship Scheme, which focuses on supporting high-quality research and impact. Prior to moving to Strathclyde, I spent a number of years at the Centre for Research in Lifelong Learning, Glasgow Caledonian University, as a Senior Research Fellow.
My research interests are aligned to the University of Strathclyde’s strategic priorities and lie in the areas of the articulation of the relationship between education/training and work, skills in a policy context and contemporary labour market and workplace issues. I have a particular interest in ‘middle-skilled’ jobs, skill ecosystems, apprenticeships, graduate skills and markets, gender divisions in paid work, healthy workplaces and workers, skills and jobs in the ‘green’ economy.
Current research includes: green jobs and skills; women into new green jobs; the professionalisation of intermediate occupations; skill ecosystems in context; graduate apprenticeships; the decline of the internal labour market of policing.
