Before starting his PhD research, Davey worked as a researcher at ROA from 2015 to 2018. His main research interests are related to the position of vulnerable groups on the labour market, the trend towards labour market flexibilisation and labour market inequalities in general. In his PhD research, Davey focusses on the position of vulnerable groups on the labour market, their (lack of) participation in training and the trajectories that are being followed by different vulnerable groups to reintegrate into the labour market.
