I am the Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics at the University of Zurich (UZH), a research affiliate of the Jacobs Center, IZA, the Center for Economic Behavior and Inequality (CEBI), and the Life Course Centre. I am also part of the UZH University Research Priority Programs Equality of Opportunity and Human Reproduction Reloaded.
I am an applied microeconomist, mainly interested in education and labor economics with a special focus on gender. My current work focuses on the two primary obstacles that hinder gender equality in the labor market, namely occupational choice and the response to parenthood. I tackle questions like: How can we improve the allocation of skills in the labor market? What explains occupational sorting by gender? How can we broaden students’ occupational search? How do firms adjust to worker absence?
