Research

My research lies at the intersection of political economy, comparative politics and political sociology. I am particularly interested in (a) the impact of occupational change and economic modernization on social hierarchies, (b) how changes in the economic and societal position affect political behavior, and (c) how a changing composition of the labor force shapes welfare state policy in post-industrial democracies.
