Personal profile

Research Focus

My research focuses on ageing workforce and older workers, particularly ethnic minority elderly groups within the UK/European labour market context.

Previously, I explored how older female migrant groups remained invisible within the UK's extended working lives policy landscape, and how their age, gender, ethnicity/race, social class and religion intersected to marginalise them in the host country's labour market.

I mainly deploy qualitative techniques with specific interests in applying intersectionality, life-course, and interview methods.


My teaching interests mainly lie in the areas of organisational behaviour and human resource management. I have experiences in teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate courses including employment relations, human resource management, human resource strategy and practice, equality and fairness at work, employment equality and practice, introduction to work psychology, and fundamentals of management.
