Marian has studied setting minimum academic requirements to enroll into athletic activities or obtaining a driving´s license improve high school graduation rates, the increasing relevance of grandmothers as childcare givers, the birth order effect and the dynamic and heterogeneous impacts of experiencing the death of a sibling. She joined the University of Sydney in 2015 and is currently an IZA and ARC Life Course Centre Fellow.

Marian is a labour economist who uses applied micro-econometrics to study how policy-relevant issues in labour, education, and health affect human capital, with special attention to disadvantaged children. Marian’s recent research focuses on the birth-order effect, and, together with an epidemiologist colleague, she is also examining the relevance of early-life circumstances for later health outcomes.
