Biography

I completed my Doctorate in Social Sciences at the University of Mannheim in September 2013. In my thesis I examined the impact of social class on families’ and teachers’ choices of secondary school tracks in France. Between 2010 and 2013 I taught courses on research design, survey methodology and educational inequality at the Chair of Statistics and Methods of Social Research at the University of Mannheim. Until December 2014 I worked as a research assistant at the University of Glasgow in a character education evaluation project led by Professor James Conroy.

Research interests

I am a sociologist of education with strong interests in social stratification and mobility, educational decision-making, parent-school relationships, parenting and child development, family sociology and quantitative research methods.
