I am a sociologist whose main interests are in cross-national comparative labour market research. One important aim of my research is to investigate how institutions shape the demographic distribution of labour market risks.
Another is to analyse the consequences of having been affected by such risks for individuals’ future careers and lives. During my year as a Max Weber Fellow I will extend my research in these fields.
I am currently a researcher at the Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin and will be on leave from this position for the duration of the Max Weber Fellowship. I hold a D.Phil. in Sociology from Nuffield College, University of Oxford (supervisor: Duncan Gallie).
My doctoral work focused on the labour market outcomes of initial and continuing vocational training. In addition I hold an M.Sc. in Comparative Social Policy (Oxford University) and an M.A. in Political Science (Free University of Berlin).
I have taught M.A.-level courses in the fields of Sociology of Education and Sociology of the Labour Market at the Free University of Berlin.
