My interests are in social demography and life course research.
In August 2019, I have received an ERC Starting Grant of € 1,5 million from the European Commission for my project KINMATRIX (“Uncovering the Kinship Matrix: A New Study of Solidarity and Transmission in European Families”). KINMATRIX is a 5-year project starting in spring 2020. See the press release here.
I am also 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.
