I am a reasearcher at the Warwick Institute for Employment Research, working on the graduate labour market. I have recently completed an Early Career Fellowship at the University of Warwick Institute of Advanced Study.
My current work builds on my PhD research project, which investigated whether business size affected the opportunities for first-degree graduates to use and develop their skills and knowledge. This research contributed to the literature on graduate employment and SMEs, and to policy implications for promoting SMEs as graduate employers. See my PhD project page and the Futuretrack website for more details. This research was funded by an ESRC CASE Studentship in conjunction with HECSU as the collaborating partner.
I completed my BA in Economics and Management (2007) and CEELBAS-funded MPhil in Russian and East European Studies (2010) at the University of Oxford, St Anne’s College. Throughout my career I pursued my research interests in the economics of higher education and the graduate labour market and developed broader mixed-methods research approaches.
