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 two themes:

  • Country differences in body-weight norms (funded by a VENI grant of the Dutch Research Foundation).
  • The role of health measurement in studies of health inequalities (funded by a research grant of the German Research Foundation).
