In my PhD project, which is funded by the ROCKWOOL Foundation, I use quantitative methods and Danish administrative data to examine the intersection between crime, incarceration and family. I study intergenerational patterns in criminal offending along with the prevalence and consequences of paternal incarceration. I expect to finish the dissertation in December 2020.
In the fall of 2018, I taught a course called “Design-based Research in Criminology”, which provided students with a framework for understanding and estimating causal effects together with theory and empirical examples drawn from the criminological field.
My key areas of interest are:
- Criminology and penal policy
- Intergenerational transmission
- Family instability
- Quantitative methods
- Causal inference
