I am the Head of the Emmy-Noether Research Group Varieties of Reproduction Regimes: Institutions, Norms and Inequalities (VRR), funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) (2022-2028) at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center. Previously, I was interim professor for microsociology at the Department of Social Sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (2021/22), and guest professor at the Institute of Sociology at Freie Universität Berlin (2020/21). My main research interests are in comparative sociology with a focus on social inequality, reproduction, and family relationships across the life course, and the role of policies. I have worked extensively on family policy and single parenthood. The current project focuses on reproductive processes and their regulation by the state.
