DPhil in Social Policy
I am a DPhil candidate in Social Policy, funded by the Barnett House-Nuffield Joint Scholarship. My primary research interest lies in how education policies relate to societal inequalities. My MSc thesis investigated the relationship between stratification (the degree of grouping of students into separate schools/programmes), standardisation (the degree of centralisation of an education system) and the gender gap in expressing STEM career aspirations. My DPhil will explore similar topics, focusing more closely on the role of social origin.
I hold a BSc (Hons, summa cum laude) degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences (Policy Science) from Leiden University College, and have recently completed an MSc (Dist) in Comparative Social Policy at the University of Oxford.
