PhD Research

Queen Mary, University of London

Awarded QMUL Principal's Studentship

My PhD research examines the experiences of Muslim women in the Labour Party using intersectionality as the theoretical framework. 

I use the innovative research method of autoethnography as well as in-depth qualitative interviews with Muslim women and Labour Party staff and former staff to shine a light on the discrimination these women face and how they can be better supported

Mile End Institute,

Queen Mary, University of London

We use public polling to explore whether the pandemic will have a lasting effect on politics and public policy in Britain. We ask whether the public want their lives and the role of government to change once the pandemic is over, or if they just want things to go back to how they were.

Place and Wellbeing Priorities in Local Government

LGIU and Queen Mary, University of London

Funded by Research England

This project explores the impact of Covid 19 on the wellbeing agenda in local government.

Through a series of workshops and interviews with local council officers and elected councillors we examine whether the pandemic has spurred on efforts to put residents' wellbeing at the centre of local priorities, or if the financial burden placed on local authorities has meant that resources only remain for the most basic of services.
