Projects per year
My research uses a variety of large-scale national datasets to explore how labour markets and social transfers structure work inequalities among women and men, as well as between them. My interest in institutional effects on inequalities is further explored in comparative research, and more recently in analyzing linked employee-employer data to assess how inequalities are configured within and across organizations. I am also interested in life course research, such as the impact of household divisions of labour on divorce risk. I am currently pursuing these interests under a European Research Council Consolidator Grant (680958, 2016-2021) for the NEWFAMSTRAT project.
My research has thrice been short-listed for a Rosebeth Moss Kanter Award for Excellence in Work-Family Research (2006, 2010, 2013), with past funders including the British Academy, the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst-Wandel durch Austausch (DAAD), the Economic and Social Research Council, the European Commission (IRISS), the Leverhulme Trust, and others.
Willing to supervise PhD
I would welcome PhD applicants with keen skills and interests in using advanced quantitative methods to explore inequalities at the intersection of gender, class, and race/ethnicity in their socio-economic and political context.
