I am a Professor of Gender and Employment Studies in Edinburgh Business School, at Heriot Watt University. My research, training and consultancy aims to create equitable employment, fostering diverse and inclusive workplaces where everyone can thrive. Of particular interest how gender intersects with other social identities including disability and migratory status to inform the lived experience of employment. My current research projects include:
- disability and STEM careers http://www.disc.hw.ac.uk
- disability and academic careers
- the management of menstruation, menopause and gynaecological health conditions in the workplace
- healthy ageing at work
My teaching includes issues facing the contemporary workforce including gender inequalities, disability, migration, human trafficking, critical race theory and work-life interactions.
This page began as a way to promote my research project with migrant academics. I will provide updates as the project progresses and some ‘postcards’ from my travels around Australia and New Zealand. More recently it has become a more general forum for discussing my academic work (teaching and research) as well as using that work to inform short think pieces on things I see in the news.
Please do get in touch if you would like to hear more about any of my research or would like me to write something for your blog or OpEd pieces firstname.lastname@example.org
