I joined MMU in June 2018 as a Senior Researcher on the ESRC funded project Understanding Inequalities (UI) which aims to explore the causes and consequences of inequalities in Scottish society and beyond.My research covers a variety of areas including inequality, ethnicity and migration. I am a member of the Crime and Well Being Big Data Centre, an affiliate member of the Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity and the Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research, and co-ordinator of the Migration and Families Network which I co-founded in February 2017.Prior to my current role, I was a post-doctoral researcher and a lecturer in the Department of Social Statistics at the University of Manchester. I have also held research posts in the Migration and Border Analysis Unit in the Home Office Science Directorate and the Centre for Urban Policy Studies (CUPS). I gained a PhD in Social Statistics from the University of Manchester in 2014.

Nov 2017 - ESRC Festival of Social Science ‘Telling Migration Stories with Data’. One day event run with the Q-Step Centre at the University of Manchester aimed to stimulate interest in the quantitative social sciences by encouraging secondary school students to develop a more critical understanding about the way statistics are used in the news to influence public opinion and debate on migration.
Feb 2017 - I co-founded (with Dr Lindsey Garratt) the Migration and Families Network which aims to create a platform to share research, practice and policy on migrant families across Europe. The Network has over 100 members including practitioners, academics and students.
