I am an incoming Assistant Professor at the Department of Social Policy, London School of Economics, and currently a postdoctoral prize fellow in sociology at Nuffield College, University of Oxford. I specialise in social and educational inequalities, gender disparity, cross-border policy diffusion, and the political economy of education and social sector reforms. My research primarily focuses on emerging and developing economies while I have experience working on advanced economies.
