I am a Masters of Research graduate with a distinction in Social Policy with three and a half years professional research experience at Women’s Aid Federation England, a national charity which provides support for women and children experiencing domestic abuse.
I have experience working with large scale data sets, including working on the analysis of the Women’s Aid Annual Survey, a survey of all of the domestic abuse services in England and the largest data set in this area. For the last year I have led a research project which looks at women’s experiences of seeking refuge in England when fleeing domestic abuse; as part of this I managed a national quantitative data set and supported frontline workers with data collection, conducted qualitative research including surveys and interviews with professionals working in the sector and led on the analysis and presentation of the findings, including presenting the findings of the project to the UK government.
With experience in writing reports for publication my strengths lie in pulling together data from multiple sources to produce quality, coherent outputs with strong arguments, this is evidenced in my portfolio.
My work has also been reviewed and commented on in The Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/jun/26/domestic-abuse-survivors-and-children-sleeping-rough-survey-finds
