  • Overview:
    • My research broadly examines the pathways from childhood to adulthood and the intergenerational transmission of educational success. In particular, my interests lie in understanding the relative importance of early cognitive, socio-emotional and behavioural skills in promoting success in education and the labour market. I have also carried out work on the educational and occupational choices made by young people during the transition to adulthood, with a particular focus on entrepreneurship.

      My PhD examined key features of development during the pre-school and primary years and their implication for later outcomes using three longitudinal birth cohorts. I was chiefly interested in the manifestation of educational inequalities through the school years and assessing how different contexts, such as the family and schools, interact to create them.

      I am Co-Investigator of the Longitudinal Study of Young People in England (LSYPE) and am currently working with colleagues to develop the next stages of the study.
