Name Thesis title Completed
Hannah Isabelle Tornow Which contextual and individual factors shape gender inclusive innovation in the knowledge economy of Oxfordshire? Active


My research focuses on measuring gender inequalities in the economy and society. I am particularly interested in global comparative measures of gender equality and contributed to the development and/or updates of several gender indices (e.g. EU Gender Equality Index, Gender Inequalities Index, Social Institutions and Gender Index). I am also interested in the role that (gender-based) violence plays in producing and reproducing gender inequalities. 

Research impact

I regularly engage with national governments and international organisations on the topic of gender statistics and the measurement of gender inequalities.
