Professional experience

Louise completed her BA in Law at Peterhouse in 2014 and shortly thereafter joined the Centre for Business Research where she worked as a research assistant alongside Professor Simon Deakin. While at the CBR, Louise worked on a couple of projects and spent the majority of her time on the Centre for Business Research – Labour Regulation Index and an ILO industrial relations data-gathering project.

Louise completed the LLM at the University of Sheffield in 2017 with distinction and worked for the University of Sheffield during and after the LLM. She has now left the University of Sheffield to spend more time working with the CBR on the Labour Law and Poverty Alleviation in Low- and Middle-Income Countries and related projects.
