PhD topic: The inter-relationships between unemployment, time structure, time perceptions and wellbeing
Supervisor: Professor Liam Delaney
Sharon’s research is focused on exploring the inter-relationships between time structure, time perception and unemployment / underemployment. Specifically, she is interested in the extent to which periods of unemployment and / or underemployment weaken an individual’s time structure and / or distort various aspects of their perception of time and, if so, what effects these changes have on wellbeing, mental health and intertemporal decision making.
Separately, Sharon is also interested in employee experience and EDI within corporate settings. She has conducted research for LSE’s Inclusion Initiative and is currently a class teacher (GTA) on the International Human Resource Management course in LSE’s Department of Management.
Sharon is also a GTA for the PBS Department's MSc Behavioural Science programme.
Sharon has Master’s degrees from the LSE in both Economics and Behavioural Science, is a Chartered Financial Analyst and has over 20 years of work experience in economics, governance and operational roles within the financial services industry.
