Dr Maria Hudson

Senior Lecturer EBS, Organisation Studies and Human Resource Management, University of Essex

I joined Essex Business School on 1st March 2016 following several years working independently as an employment and social policy researcher and analyst. Prior to this I spent nearly ten years working as a social researcher at the Policy Studies Institute, University of Westminster. My research background has generated extensive experience of managing research projects from design through to completion. Over the years, my research interests have remained largely connected to the study of inequalities in work, labour markets and wider society. I have undertaken a wide-range of research projects for numerous sponsors; for example, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, the Department for Work and Pensions, Acas, the Commission for Racial Equality and the Low Pay Commission. I have also taught at several universities in the UK, most recently in the School of Business and Management, Queen Mary University of London and in the Faculty of Human, Social and Political Science, University of Cambridge. In my approach to teaching I have a particular interest in reflective practice and learning, and blended learning. I also enjoy sharing my research experience with students embarking on a research journey for the first time.
