I am research fellow in the research group Demography and Inequality at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center. I studied sociology at the universities of Bamberg and Bergen (Norway) from 2003 to 2008. After graduation I worked as research assistant at the National Educational Panel Study (2008-2011) and the Professorship of Demography at the University of Bamberg (since 2008). In 2011 I was a visiting pre-doctoral fellow at the Center for Research on Inequalities and the Life Course (CIQLE) at Yale University, New Haven. In 2014, I completed my PhD (“Family Effects on Family Formation”) at the University of Bamberg.

My research interests cover life course sociology, family demography, aging, and intergenerational relationships within families.
