Welcome to my website. I am a Professor of Economics at the University of York and an IZA Research Fellow and a Network Member of the Human Capital Economic Opportunities Working Group.

My research interests are labour economics and applied microeconometrics. I have worked on topics including youth unemployment and policy evaluation of public sector incentive schemes. Currently I am interested in role of shocks to family resources in the development of child human capital; on the influence of family peers on labour market decisions for mothers and the joint modelling of household decisions.emma.tominey@york.ac.uk
