I am an Associate Professor of Sociology and since 2021 I work as a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Criminology. My research so far has included different aspects of social exclusion and social problems, predominantly eviction, criminal offending, drug abuse and poverty. I have also done work on well-being and future orientation in youth and its determinants and consequences, and on childhood family relations and somatic as well as psychiatric ill-health in adulthood.
This project aims to examine the extent to which social, economic, and health-related adversities are transmitted across multiple generations – from parents, to children, to grandchildren – and whether processes reflecting resilience may break this reproduction of inequality.
The aim of this research programme is to study how social, economic, and health-related inequalities in the parental generation re-emerge in subsequent generations as well as the extent to which siblings and friends may explain or break this reproduction.
