I am a research assistant in the project group Demography and Inequality at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center and in the DFG-funded project “The Intergenerational Exchange of Time and Money: Reciprocity in parent-child relationships” at the University of Bamberg. 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. Currently I am finishing my PhD thesis with the working title “Family Effects on Family Formation” (expected submission date: Spring 2014).

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