About the author:
My research examines how the connection between family contexts and children’s health and wellbeing is implicated in the transmission of inequality across generations, with a particular focus on proximate settings (e.g. parental work experiences and family structure) and broader systems of stratification (e.g. gender and socioeconomic).
What I want to achieve:
The goal of my research is to ask questions with clear implications for public policy by focusing on policy-malleable mechanisms and levers that explain how advantage is transmitted between parents and their children.
