I am a Professor of Career Studies at Southampton Business School and Co-Director of Work Futures Research Centre. I study work-nonwork interface, career success, and understudied careers using in-depth qualitative methodologies. I serve as the Associate Editor of Human Relations and sit on the editorial board of other journals. 

My research informs individuals who take ownership of their careers and helps organisations learn more about their employees' work and nonwork needs. I share my research with the world of work and provide consultancy when I can make a difference. 

I adopt hands-on and experiential approaches in my teaching and prioritise creating an inclusive learning environment that enables students to think critically and flourish. I am lucky to supervise my current PhD students, all of whom aspire to contribute to career research and practice.
