I am Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Amsterdam.

Before coming to Amsterdam, I completed a PhD in sociology at the University of Bamberg and a Max Weber Postdoctoral Fellowship at the European University Institute.

My interests are in family sociology, life course research, demography, and social stratification.

I am principal investigator of the NORFACE project CRITEVENTS (2017-2020), which has been awarded € 1,5 million by the European Commission via an ERA-NET Cofund grant. Read more about this project here.
