Intergenerational Relationships

In my dissertation, I investigated young adults' intergenerational relationships in Switzerland. Marc Szydlik was my supervisor. My research was mainly based on data from the TREE study. The results can be found in three articles and a book.

Currently, I am working together with Christian Imdorf and Nadine Dörffer (University of Hanover) on Gender and Education, as well as Regional Policies as Determinants of Leaving the Parental Home.
