Selçuk Bedük

I have completed my DPhil in Social Policy in February 2018 with a project on poverty measurement in Europe. My thesis evaluates the empirical performance of existing deprivation measures and searches for alternative ways to improve their design. Some papers from this work have been published in European Sociological Review and Social Indicators Research. In March 2018, I started working as a Senior Research Officer at the Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER), University of Essex, working on “Inequality, early adult life courses and economic outcomes at mid-life in comparative context (EQUALLIVES)“ project. My current research interests are poverty measurement, social stratification, life course, causes and consequences of poverty and comparative social policy.
