Nadia Ayed



Nadia is a part-time intern at the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence. She is co-leading the equality, diversity and inclusion initiative, along with Gareth Young. The key aim of this work is to have meaningful and engaging conversations about housing and diversity in the broadest sense and to share people’s real stories and experiences of housing and home.

Nadia is currently completing her PhD at Queen Mary University of London, funded by the London Interdisciplinary School Science Doctoral Training Partnership (ESRC). Her project focuses on exploring experiences of homelessness and housing precarity through a social capital lens. She’s interested in identifying what is afforded by certain social relationships and connections with services. The thesis also explores the ways in which services may navigate the care and support they provide in ways relating to social capital.

Previous to her PhD, Nadia studied Psychology, Politics and Sociology at the University of Cambridge and then went on to complete her MSc in Mental Health Studies at King’s College London. She has a particular interest in interdisciplinary research and mixed methods design.
