I am currently a guest professor at the Institute of Sociology at Freie Universität Berlin. I previously worked at the Department of Social Sciences at Humboldt-University Berlin, to which I will return in April 2021. My main research interests are in comparative sociology with a focus on social inequality, family relationships, reproduction and welfare states. I have worked extensively on family policy, single parenthood, and the life course. More recently, I have developed a focus on reproductive processes and their regulation.
