Genevieve is a post-doctoral researcher and joined the Centre for Networks and Enterprise (CNE) in 2018.

Previously at the 'Work and Employment Research Unit' (WERU) at Greenwich University Business School, Genevieve’s research has so far focused on comparative employment and industrial relations within a number of sectors, including healthcare, social care, the civil service and musicians. Her doctoral thesis focused on trade union responses in the context of public healthcare marketisation in France and in England. 

Genevieve has presented at several international conferences and exchanged with other research units as a visiting research fellow, including the LEST in Aix-en-Provence in France, the ILR School at Cornell University in the US, and the CRIMT in Montreal, Canada. Prior to starting her doctoral studies, she worked as a manager in the finance sector. She holds a BA in Psychology and an MSc in Industrial Relations, both from the University of Montreal in Canada.  

As part of CNE, she is developing a number of research projects based around employment, stratification and disability.
