Rebecca Ye is a sociologist of education & work

My research takes place at the intersection of education and labour markets, and pays special attention to vocations, trajectories and temporality. In recent years, my research projects have examined elite institutions, higher vocational education, and transnational education strategies. These studies have allowed for the examination of education-to-work pathways that are institutionalised as well as pathways that are emerging and anticipatory. More on ongoing research projects and publications can be read here.

I am presently Assistant Professor (biträdande universitetslektor) at the Department of Education, Stockholm University. In previous years, I have also been a visiting academic at the Nanyang Technological University and the UCL Institute of Education. Before life in academia, I worked in the foreign service as well as conducted research for policy and practice at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies and Institute for Adult Learning in Singapore. I received a PhD in Sociology from Stockholm University and a Master of Science in Sociology from the University of Oxford.
