I completed my doctorate at Cardiff Business School. My research examined the impact of employee participation strategies on levels of workplace trust, assessing the extent to which 'meaningful' participation and the creation of genuine trust is possible within LME workplaces. Since then, I have been employed on a number of research projects, which have focused primarily on the greening of economies, jobs and skills.

I joined IRRU in 2016 and work as the UK correspondent on the Eurofound contract.
