She has also worked on a graduate job upgrading project at SKOPE, University of Oxford, and on developing a web-based women’s labour market information resource at the Scottish Government in Glasgow. Daria specialises in mixed-methods research, including quantitative analysis, the use of survey data, and semi-structured interviews.
