I currently have a three major research projects:


Understanding Intergenerational Transmissions: A Cross-Disciplinary Approach

This project is a Starting Grant financed by the European Research Council (ERC). It draws on theory and methods from sociology and economics to develop a new approach to analyzing intergenerational transmissions. The UNITRAN project runs from 2013 to 2018 and has its own web site here.


Learning Environments in Danish Families

This project is funded by the A.P. Møllerske Støttefond and seeks to map learning environments in Danish families and to understand their implications for children's cognitive and social development. The research team consists of Jens Peter Thomsen, Katrine Syppli Kohl and me. The project uses mixed methods and runs from 2017 to 2021.


Religion, Social Mobility, and Preferences for Redistribution

This project is funded by the Danish Council for Independent Research | Social Sciences and explores the effect of religion and experiences of social mobility on individual preferences for redistribution. The research team consists of Achim Goerres and me and the project runs from 2015 to 2017.
