Juliana de Castro Galvao

Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow in Sociology

Research Interests: Social stratification, gender inequalities in cross-national perspective, policy analysis, intergenerational mobility and inequality, and methodological issues in inequality measurement.

I am a Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow in Sociology at Nuffield College, University of Oxford. I am also affiliated with the Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science at the University of Oxford. Broadly speaking, my research spans social stratification, policy analysis, and methods. I am interested in understanding how inequalities are reproduced across social groups and the factors that can mitigate long-term social inequalities. My published work has investigated topics such as gender inequality in lifetime earnings, the impact of conditional cash transfers on socioeconomic indicators, policy and housing affordability, and methodological issues in inequality measurement.

My current research agenda extends my prior work by investigating how and why gender inequalities in labor market outcomes unfolds over the life course in different ways across societal groups and national contexts. More specifically, I am currently working on a paper that proposes a life course approach to the study of family inequalities in cross-national perspective for understanding why gender inequalities in labor market outcomes persist and to unravel the factors that can promote long term equality and well-being both within and across generations.
