Some information about me
My interests centre around understanding how diverse and broadly defined technologies – from ICTs to documents - are involved in processes of categorising, managing and constituting certain kinds of persons and places. This common thread links work in the fields of welfare, health and healing, gender, and personhood. Before joining the CRESC-affiliated project Women in North-West Shared Services (WiSS) as project officer, I was a research associate at QUALITI, the Cardiff University node of the ESRC National Centre for Research Methods, where I worked on the demonstrator projects: Gendered Suicide and Talking Treatments.
Current research projects
Together with Debra Howcroft and Chris Westrup, I am currently engaged with the CRESC-affiliated project Women in North-West Shared Services (WiSS). The research is concerned with the transformation of back office work and the new organisational form – the shared service centre – that emerges in the process. We are especially interested in the implications of these changes in relation to women who want to return to work after a family break.
