DPhil in Social Policy

I am a DPhil candidate and my research focuses on education and labour market inequality and social mobility with particular attention to developing countries. My topics of interest also include mental well-being, youth and family dynamics. My research uses household surveys and large-scale learning assessment data such as PISA, PASEC, TIMSS and PIRLS. Besides, I analyse large text corpora using natural language processing (NLP) techniques. My research has appeared in Research in Social Stratification and Mobility and received awards from the International Sociological Association- RC28, Comparative and International Education Society and Japan Sociological Society.
