Dr Jd Carpentieri profile picture
  • Associate Professor

  • UCL Institute of Education

I am an Associate Professor of Social Science and Policy at UCL, and an Honorary Research Associateat the Centre for Longitudinal Studies. In my research I use and contribute to the development of a range of British cohort studies in order to investigate issues including health, wellbeing and ageing. In particular, I produce and analyse qualitative material (semi-structured interview data and open-text survey responses) within primarily quantitative panel studies. 

I have led a number of qualitative and mixed methods studies aimed at improving understanding of cohort members' experiences and perspectives. I am currently Co-I on an NIHR-funded a six-cohort qualitative longitudinal study of cohort members’ experiences of long-COVID.

Research Summary

My current research interests centre on the UK birth cohort studies, with a particular focus on producing and analysing qualitative biographical interview material and open text survey data. Since 2020 my research has focused primarily on COVID-19 and long-COVID. With regard to the former, I have conducted qualitative research using open text survey responses. With regard to long-COVID, from 2021-23 I am Co-I on a six-cohort qualitative longitudinal study of cohort members' experiences of and perspectives on long-COVID. 

My earlier research focused on education and the life course, including topics such as: 

  • the intergenerational impacts of educational inequality, and the analysis of programmes and policies aimed at addressing those impacts
  • learning across the life course, with particular emphasis on adult education.

In these areas I have led a number of multi-national European research projects. 

I have a strong interest in research methods, with a particular focus on the capacity of mixed methods research to address complex, policy-relevant research questions. 

Teaching Summary

I teach on BA and MA programmes and supervise students at BA, MA and Doctoral levels. I am a member of the BA Education Studies Senior Leadership Team, and serve as that programme's International Student and Study Abroad Coordinator. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Association.
