Per Engzell

I am a sociologist and Postdoctoral Researcher at the Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science, University of Oxford. Previously I held the Prize Research Fellowship at Nuffield College, University of Oxford, and completed my doctorate at the Swedish Institute for Social Research, and I remain affiliated with both institutions.

My research focuses on intergenerational mobility and how culture, technology, and institutions interact to shape economic prospects in the long run. I am particularly interested in novel sources of “big” data, including digitized historical Censuses and modern-day administrative registers. Methodologically, I take an active interest in interdisciplinarity and open science.
