Role

In my role as a researcher and user support officer I undertake activities that contribute to the running of a high quality user support service that ensures that analytical opportunities provided by ADRC Wales are accessible to researchers from across social science disciplines.

My qualifications include an MA in Globalisation, Identity and Technology (Nottingham Trent University, 2004), and an MSc in Social Science Research Methods (Cardiff University, 2007).

  • Industrial relations and trade union activity
  • Adult education and vocational and educational training (VET)
  • Gender and equality studies
  • Public sector management
  • Human resource management and work organisation

Current research:

I am currently completing my PhD thesis, which considers trade union revitalisation and the trade union learning agenda in Wales using qualitative and quantitative data. I am also working on research for the ADRC including research in ESF skill funding outcomes, trade unions in Wales, adult education.
