Research Focus

My research explores work related inequality issues facing marginalised workers' groups within the UK/European labour market contexts. I feel at home applying qualitative methods such as interviews and focus groups. My philosophical stance is mainly inspired by (post-colonial) feminist lenses and critical management perspectives.
