This project will address the puzzle of how to reconcile results from Jakiela & Ozier (2006) with the findings of Bhattacharya, Visaria & Zhang (2019).
The applicant will conduct qualitative and quantitative data collection in-person and over Zoom with Filipina domestic workers and their primary dependents/family members. He/she will collaborate with the supervisor to analyse the data, develop a working hypothesis and provide support for/against the hypothesis. He/she will collaborate with the supervisor to draft a working paper for submission to a conference on the linked lives of migrants.
PLEASE ONLY APPLY IF YOU HAVE WORKED ON THIS PROJECT WITH PROF. VISARIA BEFORE THIS.
The student will experience the entire research process from conceptualisation to design, implementation, analysis and writing.
