Dr Jordan Mullard (she/her) is an interdisciplinary social scientist specialising in the qualitative study of intersectionality, identity, race, caste, and the social determinants of health and health inequality. Her PhD awarded by the London School of Economics in social anthropology explored social mobility and identity-making among Dalits in rural India during a period of economic crisis. She has been heavily involved in the decolonising of anthropology, has written on the subject for the JRAI, and has offered consultancy on decolonising and anti-racism to a range of stakeholders.


Her current research explores the intersections of inequality highlighted in the recent pandemic and its relationship to our understanding and treatment of Long Covid. She is also engaged in work that explores the concept of love, the family, and the intersections of identity (race & mixed race, class, gender, and sexuality) and impacts of identity work on health.


In addition to her academic research and teaching experience, Jordan has had an applied consultancy career in anti-racism, race equality, and Equality Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) learning, development and policy where she co-designed and led large scale race equality, cross-cultural knowledge, and EDI consultancy projects across private, public and not-for-profit sectors both nationally and internationally. She has also worked as a consultant for Black-Led community development initiatives and health and social care research at the local and national level.
