I joined the Institute of Education and Society (InEs) as a Doctoral Candidate in 2017. In my PhD project, I compare students’ trajectories in German and US higher education with a focus on higher education institutions and students’ social background using sequence analysis and large-scale longitudinal panel data.
I am a national collaborator for Eurostudent, a European wide comparative project on students’ study and living conditions. Since December 2018, I am also the emerging researchers’ representative of the Luxembourg Education Research Association (LuxERA).
Before joining InES, I worked on school-to-work transitions at INSIDE, University of Luxembourg and on the cultural and political impacts of income inequality in comparative perspective at AIAS, University of Amsterdam.
I studied in Tübingen (Germany), Long Beach (USA) and Amsterdam (Netherlands) and finished my research masters studies in social sciences in 2012 with a thesis on students’ social background and the distribution of scholarships in German higher education.
My research interests are higher education research, inequality and stratification in higher education, students’ decision-making and quantitative research methods.
