Brendan Churchill

Research Fellow, University of Melbourne

Brendan is a quantitative sociologist in the sub-field of life course research. Brendan's research focuses on how individuals change over the life course and the impact of life course transitions (from education to the labour market; from the family household to having a family) on individual lives using longitudinal data. Brendan is interested in how life course trajectories differ across generations and the related issues of intergenerational inequity.

Brendan is a member of The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) and Australian Population Association (APA).
