Dr Sara Zella
Oxford Institute of Population Ageing

Sara joined the Institute in 2016 to work with Professor Sarah Harper on the research project “The impact of different work/care life courses on women’s wellbeing and quality of life in early retirement and the welfare regimes which help shape this”. Using comparative and longitudinal approach, this project aims to explore the relationship between previous employment history and the quality of life during the early years of female retirement.

Sara previously worked in Switzerland (University of Lausanne and The Swiss Centre of Expertise in the Social Sciences - FORS) and in Canada (University of Lethbridge), where she investigated the association between life events, health and wellbeing of adults with life course perspective.

Sara’s current research interests extend to the areas of wellbeing, gender, inequality and longitudinal analysis, and cover a range of topics such as health, work career, family forms and family formation.
