Dr Sarah Jewell is interested in human capital – the skills and attributes a person has that makes them attractive in the labour market. Her research focuses on the graduate labour market and how well graduates perform based on a number of factors such as subject choice and whether they return to education.
She is particularly interested in analysing the success of creative graduates in the labour market: Do they have a graduate-level job? Does their work match their field of study and salary? And how satisfied are they with their career?
It's an important area of research given that an increasing number of people are going to university. Because Sarah's research and expertise feeds into the undergraduate module "Economics of labour", you can explore the topic in incredible depth, and develop skills you otherwise wouldn't have had the chance to.
