Completed PhD in Sociology, looking at fathers who work long hours and their involvement with children – and focusing on the factors that facilitate participation with children. Currently working as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow with Dr Sally Staton and Prof Karen Thorpe. I help manage the AR-funded Sleep Transitions and Regularity study (STARs), and I have been co-leading an ongoing survey examining the social, economic, and wellbeing-related impacts of COVID-19 on individuals and families in Australia and around the world. My research focus areas are the sociology of gender, work, and family.
