Gabriel is a Research Postdoctoral Fellow (LSE-ESRC) since October 2019. He joined the Social Policy department after completing a PhD in Education at University College London (IOE). Previously, he worked as an associate researcher at the Centre for Research on Educational Policy and Practice and the Centre for Public Policy (both at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile).
Gabriel is interested in understanding how the socioeconomic and academic composition of the schools influences educational opportunities and in students' attainment level. His research focuses on estimating the impact of the classroom peers and comparing the evolution of segregation across educational systems. Gabriel also has a strong interest in studying the process of privatisation of schools systems and analysing the implications of market-oriented educational reforms.
