Melisa is a labour economist with a focus on gender and family economics and applied micro-econometrics. She completed her PhD in Economics at the University of Manchester, and her thesis concentrated on empirically modelling couples' labour market outcomes in the UK by examining the effect of a woman's partner's different labour market states on her labour force participation.
She joined the Economics department in 2018 as a postdoctoral research associate on the ESRC-funded study LGBT+ Networks, which is an interdisciplinary project with the York Management School. She is part of the Applied MicroEconometrics research cluster (AME).
