I am a sociologist at the WU in Vienna at the Institute for Sociology and Empirical Social Research and at the University of Potsdam at the Chair for Social Structure and Social Inequality. My research interests comprise the fields of gender, social inequality and the labour market.

I am currently leading two research projects. On the one hand, I examine the causes and consequences of occupational gender segregation. This project is funded by the Austrian FWF as part of the Hertha-Firnberg program (project duration: 2017-2023). On the other hand, I deal with the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly focusing on the working relationships between employers and employees.
