Biography

I am an ESRC-funded doctoral researcher in Sociology based at the Aberdeen Centre for Health Data Science. I have an interest in the cultural and health dimensions of class divisions, especially in the context of contemporary social mobility trajectories, as well as mixed-method designs, longitudinal studies and data linkage.

In my current research, I employ a mixed-method approach to examine how individuals understand, experience and evaluate upward social mobility, and the effect of social mobility trajectories on their wellbeing, using the Aberdeen Children of the 1950s cohort study.

I am also a part-time Research Coordinator at Grampian Data Safe Haven where I help to harness electronic health record data for research. As part of this appointment I hold an honorary NHS contract.

Before my PhD adventures, I was a Lecturer in Sociology at the North East Scotland College and briefly worked as a Research Assistant to Professor Claire Wallace. Prior to switching my career to academia, I worked in the Oil & Gas sector in various HR, recruitment, and business travel roles.

I have a BA (Hons) in Applied Social Sciences and PgCert in HR Management degrees from the Robert Gordon University, and an MRes in Social Research from the University of Aberdeen.

Since 2019 I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
