Dr Ezgi Kaya is a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Economics at Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University, a fellow at the Global Labor Organization (GLO) and a Research Fellow funded by ADR UK (Administrative Data Research UK), an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) investment (part of UK Research and Innovation). She is also a member and co-investigator of the GW4 Maternity Leave Network.

With expertise in labour economics, applied microeconometrics and economic demography, Dr Kaya works with large scale survey and administrative data and applied methodologies. Her recent research projects explore the role of assortative mating and household interactions on labour supply behaviour of married women and men, drivers and characteristics of gender gaps in labour market outcomes, the impact of migration policies and the relationship between labour market institutions and fertility. She has also carried out research on the identification of peer effects in the context of academic performance and the co-residence decision of young adults with their parents, a decision that is often associated with fertility, mobility and future labour market outcomes.

Her work has been featured widely across the media and published in high-quality peer-reviewed journals, including International Economic Review, Oxford Bulletin of Economics and Statistics, Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, Canadian Journal of Economics, Economica, IZA Journal of Development and Migration, Oxford Economic Papers, Industrial Relations, and International Labour Review.

Dr Kaya received her PhD in Economics from the IDEA Graduate Programme at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
