Dr Rose Cook
Senior Research Fellow
Rose is a Senior Research Fellow at the Global Institute for Women's Leadership, where she leads on GIWL’s research stream examining gender equality at work.
She is currently focusing on two projects. The first – Gendering the UK's social policy response to the Covid-19 crisis – is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and seeks to examine whether the UK’s social policy response to Covid-19 is gender-sensitive, gender-blind or gender-neutral in its design, access and impacts. The second – Who can 'have it all'? Job quality and parenthood in the UK – is funded by the Nuffield Foundation and focuses on the relationship between job quality, motherhood and fatherhood to inform policy debates around widening access to good work, supporting working parents, and equitable job design.
Prior to joining King’s in 2019, Rose worked as a lecturer in quantitative research methods at the University of Kent and obtained her PhD in Quantitative Social Science from University College London. Rose also previously worked as a researcher at the National Foundation for Educational Research.
