My research interests include industrial relations, employment and education. I am a Co-investigator with Administrative Data Research (ADR) Wales, focusing on data access and education, skills and employability linked data research. I also work with SPARK research centres to facilitate use of administrative data in research projects.

My qualifications include an MA in Globalisation, Identity and Technology (Nottingham Trent University, 2004), an MSc in Social Science Research Methods (Cardiff University, 2007) and a PhD (Cardiff University, 2016). My PhD thesis, entitled ‘The union learning agenda and trade union revitalisation in Wales’, used qualitative and quantitative methods to consider trade union activity on education and skill development in relation to trade union organising theory. I have previously worked on ESRC funded multi-university projects using the Workplace Employment Relations Survey 2004 and 2011; and a European Commission FP7 funded project, Coordinating for Cohesion in the Public Sector of the Future (COCOPS).
