  • Profile

    I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Sociology at the University of Amsterdam since September 2021. I hold a PhD from Maastricht University (cum laude) on the relevance of citizenship for the educational outcomes of the children of immigrants in the Netherlands. 

    My research focuses on social stratification and mobility using quantitative methods. I am particularly interested in analysing social, ethnic, and gender inequalities and their development throughout the life course of individuals in relation to institutional conditions. 

    My current work is part of the CAREER ERC-project led by Dr. T. Bol and focuses on the employment trajectories of workers in the context of changing labour markets.

    I hold an engineering degree from the French National School of Statistics and Economic Analysis (ENSAE), and a Master’s degree in Social Sciences specialized in interdisciplinarity (École Normale Supérieure / École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales).
