Teaching

I teach at the Queen's University Belfast School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work

I have primarily taught students on our BSc in Sociology with Quantitative Methods degree pathway. In "Social Identity: Differences and Inequalities", students explore important ideas such as forms of capital and intersectionality through critical reading of published research and through analysis of data from Northern Ireland's Young Persons' Behaviour and Attitudes Survey.

In "Researching Change Across the Lifecourse", students become familiar with longitudinal data, how researchers account for social change and the importance of the passing of time when interpreting the social world. Students learn key concepts such as Age-Period-Cohort effects as well as specialised approaches to various forms of longitudinal data, including survival analysis.

I also teach at Postgraduate level to students on the Master's in Social Science Research (MRES) programme.
