Patricio Valdivieso

Applied econometrician (PhD) with work on intergenerational economic mobility in the UK, focusing on differentials between socio-ethnic groups with particular interest on the white working-class boys. My work also touches on the intergenerational transmission of obesity in the UK analysing the impact of the socioeconomic gradient between gender and age groups and machine learning applications for predicting obesity in adults.

Michael Vallely

University of Glasgow

I am PhD candidate in the Adam Smith Business School at the University of Glasgow. I will be presenting a paper which is co-authored with my supervisors in which re-examine how social origin is operationalised in the UK Quarterly Labour Force Survey. We argue that for social origin, item non-response is selective, which has resulted in an under-estimation of previous social origin pay gaps and the number of individuals affected.
