Harriet Ann Patrick

PhD student

Harriet Ann completed her undergraduate degree in Sociology at Cardiff University before joining University of Sheffield as part of the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Data Analytics and Society. The CDT, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), brings together the University of Sheffield with Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester. In the CDT, Harriet Ann is studying an MSc in Data Analytics alongside a PhD on the financial costs of unpaid care in the UK.

Harriet Ann is excited to be a part of the CDT because it provides an amazing opportunity to develop her statistical training with talented members IN the field whilst studying pertinent sociological topics that are close to her heart. She admires CIRCLE’s dedication to conducting high quality research geared towards making change and is proud to be included in such an organisation.

Harriet Ann’s undergraduate dissertation examined the cultural reproduction of sex segregation in occupational attainment across the UK using logistic regression modelling. She is interested in applying her knowledge of gendered labour market inequalities to the gendered dimensions of unpaid care as well as further exploring this in relation to concepts of financial wellbeing. The partnership with the Office for National Statistics (ONS) proves particularly exciting as an opportunity to work with and learn from experts in analysing and handling large scale data sets.
