Personal profile

Isabel uses search models to study women's labour market outcomes. She is particularly interested in trade-offs between wages and job attributes, including commuting distance, schedule autonomy and fringe benefits. She has used a range of data sources in her research and written a blog about the opportunities and challenges of administrative data for PolicyBristol. She is a founding member of the World of Work network, which connects postgraduate and early-career researchers from across the social sciences interested in work and employment. She is also a commissioning editor for futuresofwork, a blog bridging the gap between academic and policy audiences to offer critical, research-informed thinking on ongoing and emerging issues in work and employment.


I use search models to study women's wages and employment patterns. I am particularly interested in the roles of non-wage job attributes and am currently working on willingness to pay for a reduced commuting distance and schedule autonomy.
