I am an ESRC Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Economics Department of Royal Holloway, University of London. I am a labour economist mainly working on understanding the determinants of skills formation and of human capital investment.
Most of my ongoing projects study the origin of inequality in skills development and the effect of skills in determining several outcomes.
I received an MSc (2012) and a PhD (2017) in Economics from the University of Essex where I am currently a Research Affiliate. I previously worked as Senior Research Associate at the Institute of Education, University College London.
- I have been awarded the Women and Science Chair Prize (Dauphine Foundation) with Professor Dan Anderberg to investigate the differences in skills development of girls and boys.
- New evidence on the relevance of the gender of peers on field of study specialisation! My paper is now published in Applied Economics Letters.
