I joined the CFR in October 2015 as an ESRC-funded 1+3 student. This year I undertook an MPhil in Social and Developmental Psychology with Professor Susan Golombok as my supervisor, working on the follow-up of the solo mothers by choice study, and received a distinction. I am now pursuing a PhD, which will be a comparison study of stay at home fathers in the UK, and the impact of this new family form on the parents' and children's well-being and psychological adjustment. I graduated from Queens' College, Cambridge, in June 2015 with a first class BA (Hons) degree in Politics, Psychology and Sociology and am now a member of Corpus Christi college.
