    Personal Statement

    I am a cultural sociologist, researcher and lecturer. I have a PhD in Sociology (University of Essex, 2021) and an MA in Public Policy (University of Turin, 2013). My research interests lie at the intersections of critical cultural economy studies, cultural industries, film studies, cultural policy, gender studies, class analysis, and work & employment studies. I researched social class and gender inequality in the UK documentary filmmaking profession for my doctoral thesis. I am currently working on diversity and inclusivity in film sectors and cultural industries.

    I have previously held academic positions as an Associate Lecturer at Birkbeck College (2019-2021), a Senior Research Officer at the University of Essex (2017-2019) and a Teaching Assistant at the University of Essex (2017-2020).
