Research interests

Research Activity

I completed my Doctorate in Philosophy entitled “Fathers at Work: Challenges and Stereotypes Facing Fathers with Caregiving Responsibilities in Employment” in March 2019. https://pearl.plymouth.ac.uk/handle/10026.1/14676

I will be submitting a paper based on my PhD findings entitled From the quirked brow to the ‘piss take’; Caregiving Fathers and Fatherhood Forfeits” in November 2019 (currently in internal peer review process).

 

I was successful in obtaining funding to attend the Work and Family Researchers Network Conference in NYC (June 2020) and I have submitted the following paper for consideration; Fatherhood forfeits and the fu** it fathers”. This paper is based on data obtained from comments in response to an article in the Guardian Newspaper by Mark Rice Oxley which referred to my research - https://www.theguardian.com/money/2017/nov/21/the-masculine-mystique-why-men-cant-ditch-the-baggage-of-being-a-bloke

 

I have been successful in obtaining a Rapid Response Grant at Plymouth University to enable me to undertake a scoping project to explore the following; “Fatherhood Forfeits and the Gender Pay Gap- Comparisons between Brazil and UK”. This will allow me to investigate the feasibility of a wider project exploring fatherhood forfeits in countries with a large gender pay gap (such as Brazil) through the Global Challenges Research Fund.
