I am a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Bremen at the SOCIUM Research Center on Inequality and Social Policy.
Prior I was the head of the research unit “Work, Economy and Technology” at the Institute of Gerontology at Technical University of Dortmund. Amongst others, I worked in the project “EXTEND: Social inequalities in extending working lives of an ageing workforce”.
From 2012 to 2016 I was a PhD student at the Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences (GESS) at the University of Mannheim. My dissertation explored when older workers want to retire and when they expect to do so. During that time I was also working as a researcher in the project “Determinants of Retirement Decisions in Europe and the United States: A Cross-National Comparison of Institutional, Firm-level and Individual Factors“ at the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES).
I studied Gerontology in Amsterdam as well as Sociology in Mannheim and Berlin, where I was also employed as a student assistant at the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB) and the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW).
