My research project
My research looks at inequality in higher education, specifically how students interpret university rankings, how league tables influence intergroup relations, and how they can favour the support of a hierarchical and unequal organisation of society. This is intertwined with the ideologies we use to legitimise and explain unequal power relationships, like meritocracy. I’m also interested about practices that we consider are ‘normal’, how we build that normality and what that normality this is for.
Other research interests: cognitive biases, emotions, decision making.
