I am a sociologist and postdoctoral researcher at New York University‘s Department of Sociology.
My research focuses on inequality in the labor market. I study how culturally legitimated distinctions (e.g., gender categorization) and prevailing institutional norms (e.g., work devotion norms), as well as the interaction between the two, (re)produce inequalities between groups at the workplace. I do this using large surveys and register data and advanced quantitative research methods. I am also an active proponent of reproducible research practices and open science.
In 2021 I received a Rubicon grant (2022-2024) from the Dutch Research Council for research on the stalled narrowing of the gender pay gap. In this project I for example study the relationship between job title and task segregation within occupations and gender differences in pay over time using computational text analysis and large-N register data. Prior to this I was a recipient of a Research Talent grant (2016-2021) for my PhD project on the incomplete integration of women in workplace authority.
