Said Hassan

DPhil in Sociology

I am a DPhil (PhD) candidate in Sociology at the University of Oxford, Nuffield College, supervised by Richard Breen and David Kirk. I am also affilliated with the Rockwool Foundation Research Unit in Copenhagen, Denmark.

I am interested in how social and ethnic disparities in school and neighborhood contexts shape children's later life outcomes, such as educational attainment, labor market participation, and criminality.
