Profile

Chloe's research is driven by an over-arching interest in gender and care work. Her professional background is in policy work and campaigning. She spent two years working with young carers and young adult carers, which gave her an understanding of the ways that young carers were socially positioned with implications for their experience of care and the impact of social policies. Chloe's PhD research seeks to bring together my practical experience of working with young carers, communicating their experience in ways that influence policy, and her academic interest in how intersections of social location shape the lives of people involved in care work.
