I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Public Administration and Sociology at Erasmus University of Rotterdam (NL). I conduct research into the social and economic consequences of family change for individuals and societies in the Europe and the United States.

I am an International Collaborator with the Linnaeus Center on Social Policy and Family Dynamics in Europe (Stockholm University) and with the “The Family Lives of Children of Immigrants in Norway” project (Statistics Norway).

Previously I held an appointment as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Social Statistics and Demography at the University of Southampton (UK) and I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute.

In 2011, I completed a doctoral dissertation in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison entitled “Why Do? The meaning of marriage in the Nordic countries.”
