Social Policy & Intervention (2014 cohort)
My interdisciplinary research combines social policy and organizational sociology to study the determinants of family policy at the organizational level, comparing the United States and the United Kingdom.
My research examines the relevance of human capital, variety of capitalism, and organizational decision-making on occupational family policies in knowledge-intensive industries, specifically institutions of higher education.
I also work as research coordinator (i.e. project initiator) at OxPolicy, the Oxford student think tank, leading a team of seven researchers in a project on class-differentiated challenges to work-family balance. In Trinity 2016, I will commence my new appointment as Director of OxPolicy.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Cornell University, USA, and my joint Master’s of Law and Business from Bucerius Law School and WHU Business School, both in Germany. I have also worked as a project manager in market research for three years.
