I am a sociologist and an academic researcher working on socio-economic inequalities. Currently I am a British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Oxford, affiliated to the Department of Social Policy and Intervention, Nuffield College, and the Institute for New Economic Thinking. Previously I worked as an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the Free University Amsterdam and as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Oxford. My work is focused on quantitative research on social stratification and inequality, intergenerational social mobility, inequality in economic welfare and wellbeing, and comparative social policy. In my British Academy project I focus on the role of family background for individuals’ material and psychological wellbeing.
