My Research

My sociological research focuses on the structure of daily life. I am particularly interested in social class differences in everyday family practices. Studying patterns of daily life is important to understand how resources (e.g. cultural) are transmitted from parents to children and ultimately contribute to the reproduction of inequalities.

I am also interested in methodological questions related to categorical longitudinal data, sequence analysis and causality.

My dissertation is supervised by Professor Jonathan Gershuny and Professor Oriel Sullivan. My dissertation is founded by the Centre for Time Use Research (CTUR), the European Research Council and the Swiss National Science Foundation.
