Labour market status and well-being during the Great Recession: A changing relationship?

PhD summary

The project aims to explore relationships between forms of employment and workers’ well-being, and how these relationships may have changed during the course of the current recession.


Prior to joining the Cathie Marsh Centre for Census and Survey Research (CCSR) I worked for six years in research and policy within local government. I graduated from The University of Manchester with an honours degree in geography in 2004.

In 2011 I undertook the Social Research Methods and Statistics MSc at CCSR and I am now undertaking a PhD funded by an ESRC +3 studentship. My research interests lie in the political, economic and social processes that create and reduce social inequalities in developed economies and the consequences of these phenomena on social cohesion and well-being.
