I am a demographer working in the Understanding Society Policy Unit. My research interests include transition to adulthood, social inequalities, social policy, life course, residential mobility, migration, family demography, and multistate modelling.
I studied for a PhD in Demography at the University of Liverpool and graduated from the European Doctoral School of Demography (EDSD) in Warsaw, Poland. I hold a BSc and MSc in Economics from Moscow State University, Russia, as well as an MSc in Demography from the University of Rostock, Germany.
My current role includes undertaking academic and non-academic research designed to meet the needs of policy-makers and third sector organisations. Some of my current and recent projects include: investigating life trajectories (i.e. education and employment, partnership, and residential careers) of young people in Britain during the transition to adulthood; investigating occupational downgrading after childbirth; investigating the impact of childcare prices on labour market outcomes.
