Jo is Professor of Economics in the Department of Economics & Related Studies, University of York and Head of Department (since September 2015).
Her main areas of research interest are labour economics and applied microeconometrics, focusing on the UK labour market on issues such as the gender wage gap, in-work poverty and low wages (including the minimum wage and the Living Wage). Jo's research has been funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) and the Low Pay Commission (LPC).
I am interested in supervising students in the areas of labour economics and applied microeconometrics.
