Dr Gabriella Melis
UCL Institute of Education
  • Research Associate
  • IOE - Education, Practice & Society
  • UCL Institute of Education

I started working as a Research Associate for LLAKES in June 2015, as a member of the research teams ‘Youth, Inter-generational mobility and civic values’ and ‘Education, inequality and social cohesion’. My role at LLAKES is centred around advanced quantitative analysis on cross-sectional and longitudinal datasets, such as the British birth cohort studies, BHPS-UKHLS, CELS, WVS-EVS. 

I have a PhD in Social Statistics from the University of Manchester’s Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research (CMIST), on the topic of inter-generational transmission of authoritarianism, for which I used the British Cohort Study 1970 data. I was supervised by Dr Nick Shryane, Dr Maria Pampaka and Prof Mark Elliot, and examined by Prof Rachel Gibson and Prof Patrick Sturgis.
