Madeline Nightingale

Social Policy & Intervention (2014 cohort)

I am a DPhil Candidate at the Department of Social Policy and Intervention and my research interests include low wage employment, in-work poverty, labour market inequalities and gender. 

My doctoral research draws on quantitative methods to understand the relationship between part-time employment and wages, focusing on wage penalties at the lower end of the earnings distribution. My primary focus is the UK, but I am interested in placing the study in comparative perspective. A key theme of my research is how part-time employment feeds into gender inequality in the labour market and beyond. 

I hold an MSc in Comparative Social Policy from the University of Oxford and a BSc in Social Anthropology from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
