Experience

Research

With the background in economics and nearly a decade-long career in trade unions, I joined the Faculty in 2012 first as a doctoral candidate and then as a full-time academic member of staff in 2014.

My research interests concern segmented labour markets and the effect they have on job quality, inequalities and worker representation. My Ph.D. thesis was an empirical enquiry into challenges and opportunities posed to trade unions by the rise of contingent employment in segmented labour markets. The thesis argued that blurring boundaries between primary and secondary labour markets distort trade union representation strategies entrenching further the division between core union members and periphery populated by workers with insecure, casual employment contracts.

I have been involved in numerous research project exploring the demand side of active labour market policies, trade union learning agenda and training provision in the workplace, wage determination and trajectories of collective bargaining in the UK.

I am currently working on two externally funded research projects looking at diversity and career progression in the legal profession and the social protection of workers in the platform (on-demand) economy. Funded by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), the former aims at estimating the effect of the intersection of gender and ethnicity on lawyers’ career progression drawing on the representative dataset of more than 200,000 registered solicitors in England and Wales. The latter was commissioned by the European Parliament to understand better how work conducted through online platforms of the like of Uber, Deliveroo and Mechanical Turk affects workers’ access to social protection schemes.

Drawing on expertise in quantitative methods, my research agenda is centred on the application of data science in labour market studies. I endeavour to use mathematical formulae and learning algorithms to make sense of labour market, employee and organisational outcomes. Along this line I have recently joined the team of researchers working on an NIHR funded project investing the relationship between care home staffing and quality of care.

I sit on the editorial board of Work, Employment and Society (4*ABS) and on the executive committee of the British Universities Industrial Relations Association (BUIRA).

Teaching

I specialise in teaching research methodology alongside human resource management and labour market disciplines. I have an extensive experience of teaching quantitative research methods and mixed-methods research design at undergraduate and postgraduate level. I have designed and lead courses on advanced quantitative analysis (multilevel modelling and latent variable analysis) and statistical software packages, especially the R software environment for statistical computing and graphics. I currently teach the following courses.

LUBS 1180: Understanding Data in the Social Sciences
