Personal profile

Biography

My research is organised around an interest in how paid and unpaid care work is structured and valued within organisations, by welfare states and by society at large. This research is framed within critical feminist theory and comparative welfare state approaches.

My research draws on a range of methods such as observations, interviews and social survey analysis.
