Research focus

»Since 2020 I have been working as a research associate at the Chair for Social Structure and Sociology of Aging Societies at the TU Dortmund. In my research, I am concerned with social inequality in old age and in the course of life. I focus on wealth inequality and its relation to health. Among other things, I am working on the DFG-funded project 'AGE-WELL: Material conditions and older age wellbeing in Germany and Poland: institutional and regional variation in individual risks and insurance mechanisms'. Here I am primarily responsible for the evaluation of longitudinal regional and individual data.«
