Current Research

My current research is in three areas: (i) a comparative analysis of spatial variations in youth unemployment in Italy, Spain and the UK using LFS data for the period 1993-2010; (ii) an investigation of causal links between test scores, truancy and youth unemployment using multiple versions of the Youth Cohort Surveys; and (iii) the analysis of the effect of HE funding regime changes on student dropout behaviour using HESA data.
