Rebecca Ye is a sociologist
of education and work
Her research takes place at the intersection of education and labour markets, and pays special attention to vocations, trajectories and temporality. In recent years, her research projects have examined elite institutions, higher vocational education, and transnational education strategies. These studies have allowed for analysing education-to-work pathways that are institutionalised as well as pathways that are emerging and anticipatory. Rebecca has research fieldwork experience in Singapore, the United Kingdom and Sweden. More on ongoing research projects and publications can be read here.
Presently, Rebecca is Assistant Professor (biträdande universitetslektor) at the Department of Education, Stockholm University. In previous years, she has been a visiting academic at the Nanyang Technological University and the UCL Institute of Education, and has conducted research for policy and practice at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies and Institute for Adult Learning in Singapore. She earned her PhD in Sociology at Stockholm University and Master of Science in Sociology at the University of Oxford.
