Education and Social Stratification

The effects of family economic, social and cultural capital and neighbourhood on educational outcomes

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. I am working with the Millennium Cohort Study, a birth cohort study of young people born in 2000, focusing on the English sub-sample.

Employment inequalities and labour market trajectories in 11 European countries before and during the 2008 financial crisis

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.
