I joined the University of Glasgow in 2016 as a research associate within the Administrative Data Research Centre for Scotland (https://www.adrn.ac.uk/about/network/scotland/). I am currently working on three research areas involving the analysis of linked administrative data from the benefits and tax systems:
- The causal effects of benefit sanctions on health outcomes;
- Using longitudinal administrative data on employment history to identify poverty risks and social need;
- Mental health and employment retention in Scotland;
I was awarded a DPhil from Nuffield College at the University of Oxford with a doctoral thesis on ‘Women’s employment instability and fertility dynamics: Cross-cohort changes in Italy and Sweden’, where I modelled transitions to first and second birth and labour market transitions following the birth of the first child, by using Weibull frailty models and competing risks models applied to retrospective life history data.
Prior to joining Glasgow, I was involved on a research project on ‘Fertility postponement and recuperation in Britain’ at the ESRC Centre for Population Change at the University of Southampton. This project entailed the application of survival modelling techniques on micro data from two major British cohort studies: the 1958 National Child Development Studies and 1970 British Cohort Study.
