Presentation

My research mainly examines how schools, school environments and socio-economic backgrounds produce and reproduce (in)equality in life chances. For example, I examine how school composition and different types of peer effects influence students' educational decisions. Additionally, I work with studies that examine how grading and different grading practices affect differences in achievements between students with different socio-economic backgrounds.

I received my PhD in Sociology at Stockholm University in November 2018. The dissertation named Social Influence and Educational Decisions, investigated how different dimensions of peer effects and school composition shaped the students' decision to start and finish different types of upper secondary and tertiary educations using register data.

Currently I’m the principal investigator for a project named Consequences of educational reforms on school segregation and educational equity in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. The comparative project examines how school segregation and educational inequalities developed over time and is influenced by different educational reforms.
