I am an Associate Professor in comparative social policy and the life course at the Life Course and Inequality Centre (LINES) of the University of Lausanne. I obtained my PhD from the University of Leuven with a thesis on poverty dynamics and social stratification. After that I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Manchester, a visiting fellow at the Harvard Multidisciplinary Program in Inequality and Social Policy and a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence. From 2012 – 2017 I worked as a Junior Professor at the University of Tübingen.
My research is in the areas of inequality, poverty and social policy in the life course.
