Mr Sean A Hladkyj is Postgraduate Research Student (ESRC funded) within Social Statistics & Demography at the University of Southampton.

Immediately before enrolling on the MSc in Demography at the University of Southampton I completed a period Master’s level study at the Department of Economic History, Lund University, Sweden (2011-12). Prior to this, my work experience has included posts as a Research Analyst/Assistant at the London School of Economics (2011), an ‘AimHigher Associate’ at Royal Holloway (2010-11), University of London and a temporary appointment as lecturer in Architectural History and theory (0.5 FTE) at the University of East London (2009-10). In addition, from 2010-2013, I worked in a self-employed capacity as an academic proof-reader for peer-reviewed publications, having had some involvement in more than two-dozen successfully published academic papers in a range of social science disciplines.

Research interests

My primary research interests are in the long-run demographic and socio-economic conditions of European populations. Specific research interests include the study of social mobility, socioeconomic inequalities and demographic and health outcomes in historical populations of England, Continental Europe and Scandinavia.

In my MSc dissertation I modelled the social mobility of the Anglo-Jewish population from 1851 to 1881. Continuing research projects include the analysis of mortality and social mobility in rural German populations 1700-1970.

PhD research

Social Mobility and Demographic Covariates in England, 1851-1911.

The research aims to analyse the relationship between social mobility and demographic variables in England 1851 to 1901 by the selection of a sample from the I-CeM database (held in the UK Data Archive, Essex) and the design and implementation of a linking strategy and data panel studying individual-level census and civil registration data. In this research I hope to uncover some of relationships between demographic processes and social mobility over a 60 year period and to relate the findings to more contemporary longitudinal studies.
