Personal profile


I am a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in sociology. My three year project, Race, class and mobility: learning to labour in London, Morecambe and Manchester, explores how working-class pupils in formal education in London, Manchester and Morecambe imagine their future transitions from college into higher education and/or the labour market. It examines the social and cultural factors that mediate experiences of education and transitions into work, exploring what routes out of college students think are available to them and how said routes are informed by race, place and gender. 

My previous ethnographic research explored race, identity and conviviality, with a focus on Bourdieu's conceptualisation of habitus and Butler's theory of performativity. Before moving to Manchester I worked for a year in the Geography department at UCL.
