My research looks at the impact of a young person’s access to economic, social and cultural capital at home, and the neighbourhood that they grow up in, on their educational attainment.

This PhD project studies individual labour market trajectories under two comparative perspectives: geographical, comparing 11 European countries and more than 40 European regions; and temporal, comparing the period before the European financial crisis (2005-2008) to the period immediately after the beginning of the crisis (2009-2012). Comparing countries across time, I explore the effects of the crisis on different labour markets with different labour market policies, policy responses to the financial downturn and labour market adjustment strategies.
