She is an Associate Professor of Quantitative Sociology in the Department of Social Science at UCL. She studies the transition to adulthood, including determinants and consequences of different life course trajectories. She investigates how different fertility and partnership trajectories influence both mental and physical health of older people in the United Kingdom, United States, and several other European countries. On top of her research, she teaches two classes at the undergraduate level: Principles of Social Science Research (i.e. Research Design and Quantitative Methods) and Demography over the life course. She is also part of the Q-Step Center at UCL, one of 15 new Centres in the UK that provides advanced training in quantitative research methods for undergraduates in the social sciences.
