Ana Nuevo-ChiqueroAs a part of the Sheffield Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) scheme, BA Economics student Imogen Butcher will undertake a six week research project under the supervision of Ana Nuevo-Chiquero. Their project will examine the role of exposure to sport competition during formative years on female labour market outcomes. Women’s lack of competitiveness has been credited as one of the potential reasons for the gender wage gap and this project seeks to understand the role of learning to compete.
SURE offers undergraduate students the opportunity to become directly involved in real life research projects and experience what it’s like to work in partnership with academic staff or collaboratively in a research group.
