I am an assistant professor at the Sociology Department of the University of Amsterdam, affiliated with the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR) and the programme group Institutions, Inequalities and Life courses (IIL).
I completed my Ph.D. at the Interuniversity Center of Social Science Theory and Methodology (ICS) at the Department of Sociology at Utrecht University. In 2016, I started working as a postdoc as part of the NWO-VICI project of Herman van de Werfhorst "Between institutions and social mechanisms: education and inequality in comparative perspective". Currently I work as an assistant professor on my NWO-VENI project "What do you expect? Studying teacher expectations through an institutional lens"
My research interests include: educational sociology, social stratification, teacher expectations and track recommendations, social networks, and quantitative methods and statistics
