My Research in a Nutshell

I have conducted and supported research in several capacities on research themes around environmental sustainability, gender and migration.

I am currently pursuing doctoral research on gendered patterns of youth travel and mobility to the UK while analysing the Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme to the UK.

I am particularly interested in analysing how the state immigration framework shapes young adults’ mobilities and work patterns, how young adults themselves make sense of their participation in the scheme, their work and leisure experience within the scheme, and how what is presented as a gender-neutral strand of immigration policy may be shaped by, and in turn shape, gender norms and the gendered identities of the participants.
