Research Associate

Contact details


Sara Stevano is a feminist political economist specialising in the study of work, well-being, households and development. She is currently a Research Associate in the Department of European and International Studies at King’s College London.

Her research explores how gender, class and race relations shape the organisation of paid and unpaid work, particularly observing households and everyday practices. Contextualising the everyday life of households in the global political economy, she is interested in bridging micro-macro divides and unpacking global-local relations. Working at the intersections between political economy, feminist economics and anthropology, she takes an interdisciplinary approach to theories and methods.

She was trained in Economics at SOAS University of London (MSc, PhD) and worked as a Lecturer in Economics at the University of the West of England, Bristol. She is currently conducting research on the ESRC Rebuilding Macroeconomics projects on ‘Opening the Black-Box of the Household in Macroeconomic Policy’ with Dr Johnna Montgomerie (KCL) and Dr Ryan Davey (University of Bristol).
