I am interested in social inequality, work, health, well-being, sustainability, and research methods.
Most of my research involves the collection and statistical analysis of big data sets. In some projects, I employ experimental designs and qualitative methods as well.
Apart from my substantive interests, I currently examine the suitability of statistical models to investigate social inequalities in a range of health outcomes. My other methodological research is on validity in experimental designs and the application of Bayesian statistics in social research and beyond.
I joined the University of Luxembourg as an Associate Professor in 2016. Since 2020, I am Head of the Centre for Childhood and Youth Research.
