Current Research Interests

I am interested in modelling family background measures and educational attainment with a substantive interest in inequality and disadvantage. I have wider interest in health outcomes associated with social stratification, for example mental health, birth weight and child development. I specialise in the secondary analysis of large-scale survey and administrative data. My work involves a range of quantitative techniques - generalised linear and mixed models, latent class analysis and multiple imputation of missing data.
