Research Interests: Structure of daily life.

My sociological research focuses on the structure of daily life. I am particularly interested in social class differences in everyday family practices. Studying patterns of daily life is important for understanding how resources (e.g. cultural) are transmitted from parents to children and ultimately contribute to the reproduction of inequalities.

My PhD dissertation is structured in three broad sections: (a) social class differences in time use, (b) togetherness and well-being, (c) methodological development of sequence analysis.
