Hi, welcome to my personal website. I am a postdoctoral researcher
of Sociology and Social
Psychology, University of
Cologne. My research interests focus on methods of empirical
research in sociology, family sociology, juvenile delinquency and educational sociology. Over
the last years, I also developed an interest in medical sociology.
