Postgraduate Research Student, Faculty of Social Sciences
Ashley holds a BA in Public relations from the University of Texas at Austin (2006) and an MA in International Relations from the University of Westminster (2008). My master's dissertation was a multi-disciplinary project combining economic interdependence theories, a linguistically-based discourse analysis and political conceptual frameworks. I investigated reactive US trade and environmental policy during negotiations with China. The commonly used discourse that rapid economic gains are fundamentally at odds with environmental preservation initiatives served as an underlying theme of my final project.

Ashley is currently doing a PhD in Science and Technology studies about interdisciplinary research approaches to urban sustainability research projects. Her work forms part of the wider Leverhulme Trust programme, 'Sustaining urban habitats: an interdisciplinary approach'. Using this research project as a case study, she is using ethnographic and discourse analysis methods to to map how interdisciplinarity works in practice as well as identifying key opportunities and barriers in the process.
