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.

Eurostudent VII : Students’ Study and Living Conditions in Luxembourg
In Luxembourg, education policymakers are missing key information regarding higher education students. To address this shortcoming, the University of Luxembourg is taking part in the International Eurostudent project. The goal of this European initiative is to collect information on the social dimension of European higher education to compare it across all participating countries.
