Business School

Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer in Ethics at Roehampton Business School, having previously held a position at Kingston University. In the US, I was a researcher at the Harvard Business School focusing on gender equality issues at work and at home. I was also a part-time Lecturer at Babson College and a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Gender in Organizations (Simmons College) and Women’s Studies Research Center (Brandeis University). In Germany, I worked as a researcher at the University of Stuttgart, conducting an evaluation of mentoring programs for women in Germany, a project funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). I received my Ph.D. degree from University College London.

 

Research interests

My research is concerned with equality and ethics in organizations and the professions.

 

Research interests:

- Data science as an emerging profession

- Data scientists' professional identity and ethical professional practice

- Equality, diversity and inclusion in data science

- Gender, race and class in organizations

- Intersectionality and career outcomes

- Career transitions

- Social reproduction

- Maternal employment and career outcomes

- Equality, diversity and inclusion in professional service firms

- Equality, diversity and inclusion in the Global South (e.g. Mexico)

 

My research has been published in international peer-reviewed journals, including Work, Employment and Society and Gender, Work and Organization. I have been the recipient of grants from the Mexican National Council of Science and Technology (CONACyT), the British Council and the Santander Mobility Grant Program.

 

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and the Research Ethics Officer of the Roehampton Business School. 

 

I currently supervise one internal PhD student and one external PhD student (Hasselt University). I welcome enquiries from potential PhD students interested in the research areas outlined above.

  

Research projects

I am currently working on two major research projects. First, I am conducting research on data scientists' professional identity and ethical perspectives and behavior. I am also investigating career transitions and career trajectories in the field of (big) data science.

Second, I am advancing research on social reproduction and class inequality in organizations, linking maternal employment, intrahousehold roles and negotiation and socio-economic class factors with professionals' career outcomes. 

I collaborate with academics from Harvard Business School, ESSEC Business School, IPADE Business School, Mount Holyoke College, Radboud University and Hasselt University.

 

Consultancy work

I work closely together with practitioners. I have advised corporations in Mexico on the implementation and evaluation of gender equality and work/life balance initiatives. I am currently collaborating with practitioners and activists in the UK to explore the experiences of ethnic minority professional women.

 

Teaching

I am committed to forming ethical business leaders through her teaching. I have  taught Business Ethics, International Human Resource Management, Leadership and Change, Organizational Behavior, and Qualitative Research Methods at the undergraduate and graduate levels. I have also supervised numerous undegraduate and postgraduate dissertations.
