About

I am currently Interim Professor for Microsociology at the Department of Social Sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. From October 2020 to March 2021, I was a guest professor at the Institute of Sociology at Freie Universität Berlin. 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. My Emmy-Noether Research Group „Varieties of Reproduction Regimes: Institutions, Norms and Inequalities (REPROREG)„, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), will start in April 2022 at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center.
