I currently work as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Futures Studies and Swedish Institute for Social Research, studying social inequality and youth development. Before coming to Sweden, I was a PhD-student at the University of Groningen and the Interuniversity Center for Social Science Theory and Methodology (ICS) in the Netherlands, where I wrote a dissertation on mental health disparities by sexual orientation and the role of prejudice with regard to sexual diversity therein. At the Institute for Futures Studies I participate in the research project: YOUNGWORK.
