I am a sociologist of work, focusing on the UK's creative industries.

I have been a seminar leader on various undergraduate sociology modules, as well as on the Global Media Management MA at Winchester School of Art. I am interested in teaching more on inequalities in the creative industries, using my expertise from my PhD and RA roles.
My research explores inequalities in the screen industries over the life course. My PhD focus is on how older workers from a range of backgrounds attempt to sustain their creative careers over the life course in the face of working practices and organisational cultures which act to exclude those not of the 'somatic norm' i.e., white, middle-class, and male, able to prioritise work above all other commitments.
