Chargée de recherche (Research Scientist), Institut National d'Etudes Démographiques

I am a tenured researcher at the Institut National d'Etudes Démographiques (Ined) in Paris, France. I am part of the Fertility, Family and Sexuality and Economic Demography research units. At Ined I am responsible for the Children and Their Families research axe and co-responsible for the Pole Perspectives Internationales.

Previously, I was an ESRC Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Sciences (LSE), and a Research Fellow at University College London (UCL). I obtained my PhD in 2012 from UCL, where I was based in the ESRC International Centre for Lifecourse Studies, supervised by Prof. Mel Bartley, Prof. Yvonne Kelly, Dr Anne McMunn, and Prof. Amanda Sacker.

My broader research interests focus on describing and explaining socio-economic inequalities in well being, with a focus on child outcomes and family processes. In particular, my research makes use of longitudinal methods and data, notably birth cohorts such as the UK Millennium Cohort Study, and the new French birth cohort, Elfe.
