About me

Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at Utrecht University working with Dr. Mara Yerkes on her ERC CAPABLE project. Within this project, I focus on cross-national analyses of work-life balance and (self-reported) health and well-being using cross-sectional and longitudinal survey data.

From 2015 to 2020, I worked as a Research Scientist at the Laboratory of Population Health at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research. I was involved in several projects focusing on social determinants of health and life expectancy; specifically focusing on how (work-)family factors influence health.

Previously I have been affiliated with the Department of Public Health at the Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam as a PhD candidate. The research in my PhD thesis focuses on the contribution of inequalities in work-family factors and socioeconomic status to the US health disadvantage.

A full overview of my publications and other (research) activities can be found in my curriculum vitae (as of January 2018).
