Social inequality & mobility, work, family sociology, long term trends in inequality
My research examines inequalities in the work and family sphere and the interrelations between these spheres in a historical and international comparative perspective. To identify, describe and explain these social problems, I use state of the art quantitative methods that allow drawing firm conclusions that may also inform the development of evidence-based policy interventions.
Current projects can be divided into the themes 1) Societal Change and Men’s and Women’s Life Chances in the Work Sphere and 2) The intergenerational transmission of advantage.
