Dr Ezgi Kaya is a Lecturer in Economics at Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University. She is currently the Deputy for Doctoral Studies (Economics) and the ESRC Wales DTP Pathway Leader (Economics).

Ezgi Kaya is an applied labour economist mostly interested in the economic analysis of gender, of family and of migration. The focus of some of her recent research is the labour supply behaviour of married women and men, with emphasis on the role of assortative mating, household interactions, and fertility decisions. She is also working on the causes and characteristics of gender inequalities in labour market outcomes, the impact of migration policies and the relationship between labour market policies and fertility. She has also carried out research on the identification of peer effects on the co-residence decision of young adults with their parents, a decision that is often associated with fertility, mobility and future labour market outcomes.
