So far, Marian has studied whether setting minimum academic requirements to enroll into athletic activities or obtaining a driving´s license improve high school graduation rates, the increasing relevance of grandmothers as childcare givers and the dynamic and heterogeneous impacts of experiencing the death of a sibling.

Marian´s recent research focuses on the birth order effect and together with an epideomologist collegue she is also looking at the relevance of early-life circumstances for later health outcomes.
