My research uses mixed methods to examine how young adult grandchildren in mixed heritage families may have their identities and practices influenced by their grandparents.

My research uses a mixed methods approach to explore intergenerational transmission in mixed heritage families.

Since November 2016 I have been based at the University of Southampton in the Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology, undertaking my doctoral research supervised by Prof. Rosalind Edwards and Dr. Bindi Shah.

My research uses a mixed methods approach to develop understandings of how young adult grandchildren in mixed heritage families can have their practices and identities influenced by their grandparents, specifically when they live in a non-cosmopolitan city region. I combine analysis of Understanding Society, a longitudinal household survey, with ethnographic data collected from case-studies over an 18 month period. My thesis is due to be submitted in January 2021.  

During my ESRC-funded studentship, I have also worked as a Research Assistant on a joint venture between the university and Southern Policy Centre, exploring how people experience poverty and deprivation when living around the south-coast of England.

Additionally while at Southampton I have worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant teaching sociological and qualitative methods units.

Prior to joining Southampton, I graduated from the University of Portsmouth with a BSc in Sociology & Criminology (Hons) in 2014 and an MSc in Social Research Methods from the University of Surrey in 2016.

In 2017 I was part of the organising committee for the South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership’s Final Year Conference.

From 2017-19 I also sat as a student representative on the SCDTP steering group, providing a voice to improve the research environment for postgraduate students.
