I am interested in social inequality, work, health, well-being, sustainability, and research methods.

Most of my research involves the collection and statistical analysis of big data sets. In some projects, I employ experimental designs and qualitative methods as well.

Apart from my substantive interests, I currently examine the suitability of statistical models to investigate social inequalities in a range of health outcomes. My other methodological research is on validity in experimental designs and the application of Bayesian statistics in social research and beyond.

I joined the University of Luxembourg as an Associate Professor in 2016. Since 2020, I am Head of the Centre for Childhood and Youth Research.

Some ongoing funded research projects:

  • European Labour Markets Under Pressure – New Knowledge on Pathways to Include Persons in Vulnerable Situations, 2023–2026 (WP PI).
  • Youth and Digitalization: Life Chances in the Digital Society, 2022–2026 (PI).
  • Bayesian Network Meta-Analysis for Social Sciences: Possibilities and Challenges, 2022–2026 (PI).
  • The Role of Social Trust, Future Considerations, and Perceived Fairness among Young People in Tackling Global Crises. Lessons from the Pandemic for Sustainability (and vice versa), 2020–2024 (PI).
