Ceri is interested in the interaction between social security and low-wage employment and the ways that social policies account for and influence the time use of working-age people on low incomes. For her PhD, Ceri is drawing on time use survey data as well as qualitative interview data to identify how people use their time and the impact of time use under conditions of constraint.
Ms Ceri Hughes's current research interests are:
- Inclusive growth
