My current research addresses (i) youth lifestyles and transitions, (ii) social stratification and well-being, (iii) the role of cognitive and non-cognitive characteristics for labor market outcomes and social mobility, and (iv) sustainability, esp. concerning the intersection of health, habits, and inequality.

I am an Associate Professor at the University of Luxembourg (FLSHASE, INSIDE) since January 2016. Previously, I worked as a guest researcher at the University of Bern (Institute of Sociology) and a lecturer at the University of Basel (Social Research and Methodology Group). From 2012 to 2014, I was a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge (Department of Sociology) and at Stanford University (Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality), as well as an Honorary Fellow at the University of Edinburgh (School of Social and Political Science, 2013 to 2017).

I received my PhD in sociology in 2012 and graduated in sociology, sustainable development, and modern history from the University of Basel in 2008.

Research and supervision areas: sociology of youth, social stratification, well-being, sustainability, and methods.
