I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Centre on Skills, Knowledge, and Organisational Performance (SKOPE). I work on the OFS and Research England’s ‘Close the Gap’ project.

‘Close the Gap’ is a collaborative initiative between the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, dedicated to understanding and transforming doctoral admissions cultures, systems, and practices. The project aims to foster a research culture that is more socially and epistemically just, as well as inclusive.

My research focuses on the dynamics of diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education, particularly within elite universities. I am particularly interested in exploring how social class, race/ethnicity, and gender hierarchies and inequalities perpetuate and reproduce themselves, impacting access and success in higher education. My work aims to promote more equitable and inclusive practices within academia.
