- Young people's transition to adulthood
I am a quantitative social demographer, with a background in Economics. I am interested in issues about young people's transition into adulthood, inequalities in skills development and mental wellbeing, and gendered time use inequalities. I am currently a senior research assistant at the University of Southampton, working on examining survey quality of the first wave of the UK Generations and Gender Survey (GGS). The GGS studies key demographic transitions of 18 - 59 year olds in the UK, understanding new family formations, partnerships, and transitions of young people into adulthood.
I have experience in examining inequalities in young people's life chances in low- and middle-income countries, studying these issues in the Young Lives, at the University of Oxford, as well as in Khazanah Research Institute, a government-linked research group in Malaysia. My PhD thesis and current research experience allows me to examine young people's development in the UK. I am interested in being contacted by policymakers to better apply my research.
