I am a labour market & welfare state researcher and a Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Social Policy, at the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research, University of Kent, UK. 


My research interest lies in examining different labour market patterns and outcomes across European welfare states, focusing mostly on flexibility at work, work-life balance, and job/employment insecurity. Check out my recent publications here. Recently I've been awarded the ESRC Future Leader's Award to carry out research on the relationship between schedule control and work-family conflict, and the importance of contexts in this.
