Personal profile


Currently in my final year as a PhD candidate, I am researching the constructions and policy uses of gender equality indices with a particular interest in measurements of unpaid work. My project is fully funded by the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council with an Advanced Quantitative Methods stipend and supervised by Prof Colette Fagan and Prof Mark Elliot. I am part of the Gender, Work and Care research network and affiliated with the Work and Equalities Institute.

I am also a Research Fellow at the Global Institute for Women's Leadership at King's College London, where I previously collaborated on two research projects – one piloting a UK sub-national gender equality index and the other, funded by the UN Foundation, comparatively assessing the gender pay gap reporting regimes of six countries.

Over the past two years, I have worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the Sociology department, teaching on the courses Contested Foundations of Social Thought; Work, Organisation and Society; Social Class and Inequality in Britain.

Before moving to the UK, I completed my MSc in Sociology: Comparative Organisation and Labour Studies at the University of Amsterdam and was awarded the 2017 National Prize for Best Social Science Master Thesis in Gender and Sexuality Studies by the Amsterdam Research Centre for Gender and Sexuality. I hold a BSc in Psychology from the University of Zurich.
