I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Sociology at the University of Amsterdam.

My interests are in population health, social epidemiology, demography, and medical sociology. I analyze physical and mental health in comparative and longitudinal perspective. My current work focuses on three themes:

  • Country differences in social norms regarding body weight (funded by a VENI grant of the Dutch Research Foundation).
  • Life course trajectories and social change in mental health in comparative perspective.
  • The role of health measurement in studies of health inequalities (funded by a research grant of the German Research Foundation).
