Research

I have a vivid range of cross-disciplinary research interests, yet nearly all of my research is inspired by a sociological life course perspective. My general scholarly interests relate to social stratification research, family research, social demography, quantitative social research methodology, longitudinal and cross-national research, as well as digital social research.

I have published on a variety of topics including research on online dating and digital marriage markets, big-data research methodology, the demography of grandparenthood, the gendered division of household labour and care, gender inequality on the labour market, social inequality in educational opportunities, intergenerational educational reproduction and mobility, the role of educational systems in educational reproduction and mobility, and the role of early childhood education and care for educational inequality.

My work is published in form of peer-review journal articles, books chapters, and research reports. Moreover, I have co-edited a series of edited volumes.

I am member of several professional associations and international research networks.
