Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests lie primarily in the field of labour economics and applied econometrics, with a particular emphasis on the economic and social aspects of labour migration. My research focuses on three areas: 1. undocumented labour migration; 2. precarious and atypical forms of employment; 3. migration and regional development. I am interested in both applied and theoretical research in these areas and has conducted a range of research consultancies for the Development Centre of OECD, the Council of Europe, the Organisation for International Migration (IOM) and national bodies.

In November 2019, my project proposal on 'the impact of migrant remittances on promoting small and medium-sized enterprises in home countries' was approved for funding of a PhD studentship by the South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership:https://www.brighton.ac.uk/research-and-enterprise/postgraduate-research-degrees/funding-opportunities-and-studentships/2020-scdtp-migrant-remittances.aspx

In October 2017, I completed a project, concerning atypical and precarious forms of employment in Greece, in support of the impact assessment on the review of the Written Statement Directive (Directive 91/533/ECC), commissioned by PPMI - Public Policy and Management Institute, Vilnius, Lithuania. The study is available at: http://bit.ly/WSD-PPMI

I sit on the coordinating committee for Bulgaria in the longitudinal SHARE study - Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (http://issk-bas.org/share-survey-wave-7/).

Supervisory Interests

My research interests are in the area of labour migration, agency work and regional development, comparative international research, and with extensive expertise in research methodologies and advanced econometric and statistical skills in the analysis of survey data.

  • Christopher Monks,' Stakeholder involvement in the selection of biodiversity - focused voluntary Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) standards within the food/agri-business industry'. PhD awarded in July 2019 (lead supervisor)
