Description: Claire's research interests include all aspects of work and family, including motherhood and fatherhood roles, careers, childcare, flexible working, part-time work, work-life balance, work-life conflict, work stress and family well-being, among others. She joined the Institute for Employment Research in February 2009 after working at City University, London, on a series of ESRC-funded projects, including an extended project within the Gender Equality Network (www.genet.ac.uk). She uses both qualitative and quantitative data in her research, focusing specifically in the area of work and family issues. Since joining IER, she has been involved in a variety of projects, including an evaluation of the Quality Part-time Work Fund for the Government Equalities Office (GEO), and have recently co-authored an ILO report on the influence of working time arrangements on work-life balance.
