I am a member of the Work and Equalities Institute at the University of Manchester.
I joined University of Manchester at the end of 2010 and before that worked at Lancaster University for seven years. My background is in consumer research and my interest in family consumption has informed a focus on parents’ experiences of the work-care interface, with a particular focus on fatherhood.
