We are an interdisciplinary research team looking at ways in which we can support parental leave in all its shapes at Northumbria. In particular, we are keen to understand how technology plays a role in supporting (or sometimes hindering) the juggling act of becoming a parent, maintaining a professional role and everything in between.
