Ella completed her undergraduate degree in Human, Social and Political Sciences and her MPhil in Health, Medicine and Society at the University of Cambridge before moving to Sheffield in 2020. In 2022, she joined the University of Sheffield, undertaking an MA in Research Methods before beginning her doctoral research in September 2023. Ella’s doctoral research examines the role of male social care workers in England, with a particular focus on how different groups of men experience care work (including British-born men and those who have migrated to the UK) and how more men could be recruited into the sector. This project is funded by the White Rose DTP and is supervised by Professor Sue Yeandle and Professor Majella Kilkey.
Ella is excited to be a part of CIRCLE’s diverse interdisciplinary and multi-methods research team, and looks forward to developing her skills further through utilising both quantitative and qualitative methods in her work. In addition, she hopes to create accessible research which carries real-world impact; hopefully contributing to positive changes in the contemporary social care sector.
