PhD fellow

In my Ph.d. project, I use quantitative methods to study how family and social background shape individual preferences and practices in terms of cultural consumption. Particularly, I am interested in whether inequalities in the distribution of resources (e.g. economic resources, skills and abilities, opportunities etc.) affects inequalities in patterns of cultural consumption.


The PhD project is part of the project "Mozart with Mom? Family background, cultural participation, and social inequality" funded by the VELUX Foundation (https://samf.ku.dk/nyheder/mozart-with-mom/). PhD supervisor/PI: Mads Meier Jæger.


I teach the MA course "Kill Your Darlings – A Critical Review of Classic Theories and Concepts in Sociology" about quantitative empirical tests of classical sociological theory. I also co-teach the BA course Recent Statistical Analytical Strategies about Factor and Latent Class Analysis.
