I joined Strathclyde Business School under the Chancellor’s Fellowship Scheme, which focuses on supporting high-quality research and impact. Prior to moving to Strathclyde, I spent a number of years at the Centre for Research in Lifelong Learning, Glasgow Caledonian University, as a Senior Research Fellow.
My teaching interests are in labour markets, jobs and skills. I currently teach on undergraduate and postgraduate modules.
My research interests are aligned to the University of Strathclyde’s strategic priorities and lie in the areas of the articulation of the relationship between education/training and work, skills in a policy context and contemporary labour market and workplace issues. I have a particular interest in ‘middle-skilled’ jobs, skill ecosystems, apprenticeships, graduate skills and markets, gender divisions in paid work, healthy workplaces and workers, skills and jobs in the ‘green’ economy.
Current research includes: green jobs and skills; women into new green jobs; the professionalisation of intermediate occupations; skill ecosystems in context; graduate apprenticeships; the decline of the internal labour market of policing.

- Students entering university at second year or above face a number of challenges, such as integrating into pre-existing social groups and adjusting to pedagogical changes. The limited literature on advanced college entrants tends to focus on transitions into and through university but there is an evidence gap in relation to the transitions beyond university for this student group. This project aims to fill this gap with a view to informing practices that will enhance employability and support positive graduate destinations.
