Social stratification and the reproduction of social status

I do research on the mechanisms behind social stratification and the reproduction of social status at the Institute for Analytical Sociology at Linköping Univeristy. I am also guest researcher at the University of Gothenburg.

The current research that I am doing involves analysis of neighborhoods, attitudes, school segregation, and child health. I employ econometric methods in attempts to make causal inference about the mechanisms behind social facts.

My previous work has covered topics such as parental investments, family size, beliefs, educational inequality, and formal modelling.
