A Warm Welcome to Claire Crawford

The WED team is pleased to now have expert education analyst Dr. Claire Crawford on board.  Claire will focus on a feasibility study of linking various education datasets to the Wage and Employment data spine. 

Claire is Associate Professor of Economics at the UCL Centre for Education Policy and Equalising Opportunities (CEPEO) and a Research Fellow of the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Claire’s research focuses on the determinants of education and skills acquisition, and their relationship to wages and productivity. She is particularly interested in understanding inequalities in these outcomes and how policy can help reduce these gaps.

We look forward to exploring administrative education data as promising theme for the WED project.
