I am a sociologist and currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity. My research interests are in the study of international migration, social stratification, and social networks.
My work focuses on understanding the processes and mechanisms shaping inclusion among the children of immigrants in Western societies. I am currently engaged in empirical work investigating three analytical domains of inclusion and their interrelation: socioeconomic attainment and intergenerational mobility (structural inclusion); intergroup ties and diversification in social networks (relational inclusion); cultural difference, belonging and the assignment of worth to minority others (symbolic inclusion). I have a secondary research agenda in the study of community, solidarity, diversity and urban sociology. Methodologically, I primarily use a combination of statistical modeling and in-depth interviewing. I also have an active interest in the application of certain data-driven classification methods to analyze within-group heterogeneity among immigrant-origin populations.
