Curriculum vitae

My current research agenda is focused on the nature, causes, and consequences of disparities in children’s human capital that lead to inequalities later on in life. This research revolves around three broad themes. The first concerns the extent to which maternal health behaviours shape the health and cognitive endowment of children, as well as the effect of differences in early health endowments on later outcomes. The second theme is related to the way in which differences in educational opportunities affect later educational attainment, labour market outcomes, and long-term life chances. The third theme is concerned with the analysis of the effects of parenting, and in particular maternal time inputs, on children’s cognitive and non-cognitive outcomes. My wider research interests also include work on family dynamics, fertility, and gender issues.
