Harriet Ann completed her undergraduate degree in Sociology at Cardiff University before joining
University of Sheffield as part of the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Data Analytics and Society.
The CDT, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), brings together the University
of Sheffield with Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester. In the CDT, Harriet Ann is studying an MSc in
Data Analytics alongside a PhD researching the financial costs of unpaid care in the UK.
Harriet Ann is excited to be a part of the CDT because it provides an amazing opportunity to develop
her statistical training with talented members in the field whilst studying pertinent sociological
topics that are close to her heart. She admires CIRCLE’s dedication to conducting high quality
research geared towards making change and is proud to be included in such an organisation. Harriet
Ann’s undergraduate dissertation examined the cultural reproduction of sex segregation in
occupational attainment across the UK using logistic regression modelling. She is interested in
applying her knowledge of gendered labour market inequalities to the gendered dimensions of
unpaid care as well as further exploring this in relation to concepts of financial wellbeing. The
partnership with the Office for National Statistics (ONS) proves particularly exciting as an
opportunity to work with and learn from experts in analysing and handling large scale data sets.
