Congratulations to all IER PhD students who have graduated. Many will have received their award certificates by post over the last few years but the ceremonies provided us with an opportunity to celebrate. So our very best wishes go to Dr Lorraine Johnson, Dr Jeisson Cardenas Rubio, Dr Sharon Chohan, Dr Jiang Yang, Dr Rebecca Wilde, Dr Tannis Goddard and Dr Bhaskar Chakravorty.
We are very proud of all of students who have worked hard and are pleased that Jeisson, Rebecca and Bhaskar are continuing their careers at Warwick. Find out more about our alumni.
Congratulations to Dr Lorraine Johnson and Dr Jeisson Cárdenas-Rubio
We would like to congratulate two of our former students who have been awarded their doctorates today, Dr Lorraine Johnson and Dr Jeisson Cárdenas-Rubio.
Dr Johnson interviewed women about their transition from public sector work during a period of austerity focusing on the intermediary systems they used. Lorraine’s research evidenced the range of support systems used to aid transitions and provided a number of recommendations for careers practice. Lorraine is currently undertaking an early career fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Studies at the University of Warwick.
Dr Cardenas-Rubio investigated to what extent a web-based model of skill mismatches could be developed for countries where the information on the labour market is relatively scarce. Jeisson’s research drew upon innovative methods in web scraping, big data analytics and machine learning to produce labour market information for Columbia that was analysed to provide a picture of the Columbian labour market. We are pleased that Jeisson joined the IER team earlier this year.
