Project Title: 

"What is the impact of National research evaluation exercises on women’s academic careers in the UK? A case study of the Research Excellence Framework 2014"

Project Description: 

Emily is a third year PhD student currently investigating gender equality issues surrounding the Research Excellence Framework 2014 (REF2014), and how these may manifest themselves in the career development and career trajectories of female academics in the UK.  

Emily's research adopts a case study approach, employing semi-structured interviews to provide rich insight into the lived experiences of female academics in the context of REF2014.

Emily has written MA (Dist) and BA Hons Dissertations (First Class) on:

  • 'Fiduciary Responsibility and Trust in UK Pensions Providers'
  • 'World Bank Pensions Reform, Creating Opportunities for UK Providers Overseas? An Investigative Study'*

This research aims to contribute empirical findings to the discourse in an original and innovative way which uncovers the vast and particularly gendered inequalities that still remain in the Academy today.

*This paper was also shared with members of the World Bank and won the Newcastle University Business School prize for Best Dissertation in 2010.
