Emilia Del Bono

Emilia’s research agenda focuses on disparities in children’s human capital that lead to inequalities later in life. Her research revolves around three themes: the extent to which maternal health behaviours shape the health and cognitive endowment of children; the way in which differences in educational opportunities affect later educational attainment, labour market outcomes, and long-term life chances; and the effects of maternal time inputs on children’s cognitive and non-cognitive outcomes.
