Over the course of Michaela’s academic career, she has taught across undergraduate and postgraduate programmes for social work and social policy as well as on the professional doctorate at Salford University. Since embarking on her academic career, Michaela has held a number of leadership roles including: Chair, Athena Swan Committee; School Lead, University’s Women in Research.
