Research Interests

I research how experiences of gender and age, gendered ageing, age bias and age-related stereotyping at work influence continued labour force participation. I am particularly interested in the individual and individual differences within the organisational context of work. While my research to date has focused on workers over 50, I am also interested in intergenerational work and age-inclusion.

My current research focus is on the psychology of women's health at work, specifically menopause.

Current projects include a 3-year investigation into hidden health factors affecting how workers over 50 engage with work (SHAW Project) and a separate longitudinal study on menopause and flexible work.
