Dr Claire Crawford is an Associate Professor of Economics in the UCL Centre for Education Policy and Equalising Opportunities and a Research Fellow of the Institute for Fiscal Studies.
Claire’s research focuses on the determinants and consequences of participation in childcare and education, for both children and their families. She is particularly interested in understanding inequalities in these outcomes and how policy can help reduce these gaps.
Claire has a strong track record of high impact research, including giving evidence to a number of select committees on education, social mobility and diversity and inclusion issues. Her work on higher education access and contextualised admissions was submitted as an impact case study to REF2021 by the University of Warwick.
