Riley Taiji

Postdoctoral Researcher in Sociogenomics

I am a sociologist with a research focus on social science genetics and labour markets. My current interests surround the use of molecular genetic data to explore the reciprocal relationship between chronotype (i.e., the timing of one's circadian rhythm) and the timing of paid employment. Since August 2018, I have been working as a postdoctoral researcher on Professor Melinda Mills' ERC-funded Sociogenome project.

I undertook my PhD in Sociology at the University of Oxford. In my dissertation, I explored the ways in which families use and are affected by nonstandard work schedules.
