I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute. In addition, I am an editor and the editorial secretary of Mens & Maatschappij.

My interests are in the transition to adulthood, life course research, stratification and family relations. I study how the young adult life phase is changing and how young people cope with these changes. I do this using longitudinal panel data, register data, and advanced quantitative methods.

In 2022, I received the GAK-KNAW award for research on the impact of temporary contracts on young adults’ other life-course transitions and well-being.

I have completed my PhD in Sociology at the University of Amsterdam in 2020. In my dissertation, “Time to Leave: Contextual and Individual Explanations for the Timing of Leaving Home,” I studied heterogeneity in the timing of leaving home.
