Biography

I am a PhD candidate at the European University Institute (EUI), Department of Political and Social Sciences, and I am interested in questions related to gender inequality in labour markets. My current research focuses on estimating wage returns to birth postponement among men and women within diverse social and institutional contexts by analysing complex longitudinal survey data. 

Before beginning my graduate studies in sociology, I finished a Master’s degree in international economics and worked as economist at the Central Bank of Latvia where my major responsibilities included macroeconomic analysis of external sector of the economy.

Apart from my current research, I enjoy learning new languages (at present – Italian and French), mastering statistical software packages such as Stata and R, exploring different cultures and doing sports.
