I work as an associate professor of sociology at CREST/ENSAE, am a faculty member of the department of economics at Institut Polytechnique de Paris, and I’m an associate member of Oxford University’s Nuffield College. I serve as editor in chief of European Societies, the flagship journal of the European Sociological Association.

I do research on social stratification, social demography, health and wellbeing, and work and family reconciliation. In my work, I mostly use quantitative methods and survey data. I have a PhD from the ICS/University of Groningen.

Below is a list of my publications. If you want to find out more about me and my work: This is my Google Scholar profile. This is my Open Science Framework profile. Follow me on Twitter. This is a collection of Stata commands I have found useful at some point. This is a collection of chocolate bar reviews I wrote (in German). Find my contact details at the bottom of the page.
