Dr Anna Tarrant - Becoming a Future (research) Leader: a story of my academic journey

In this presentation, Anna tells the story of her journey to an award of a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship. These prestigious fellowships support researchers to make the transition from early to established career, as well as to internationalise their research.


The development of the proposal required careful consideration, not only of the planned research, but also how the Fellow expects to develop their leadership in research. Anna therefore provides an overview of the planned study, ‘Following Young Fathers Further’ and its potential to advance theoretical, methodological and substantive agendas with real policy and practice implications for young fathers. She also considers the mechanisms for ensuring the success of the bid and how she plans to take this forward as her journey to leadership progresses.
