Currently I am working as a Research Scientist at the Laboratory of Population Health at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research. I am 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).
