Personal profile

Research interests

My research examines the impact of policy on work organisations, households and individuals. I am particularly interested in policy outcomes which affect gender relations and gender equality. In 2015-16 I was associate researcher with a French team carrying out a major analysis of gender equality plans and agreements, which fed into a change of government policy in 2018. Previously I have examined how work-family policies are implemented at work, focusing particularly on fathers and their take-up of paternity and parental leave policies as well as flexible and other working practices.

My research has been funded by the AHRC, British Academy, British Council, ESRC, the French government and French family benefits agency, and the Big Lottery.

I currently lead a GW4 community, the Pay Equality Research Forum, which in 2019 will analyse gender pay gap reporting, and ways in which employers can address gender pay gaps.

I am associate editor of the international journal Gender, Work & Organization.

I am guest editor of a special issue of Gender, Work & Organization, to appear as issue 5 in 2019, on actions to challenge gender pay gaps.

In 2017-18 I was a member of the steering committee of Business in the Community’s project Equal Lives. I am currently a member of the Government Equalities Office’s WAGE network of academics.

I am consultant on an EU-funded project on Trade unions and anti-discrimination policies, which will report in November 2019.
