Researcher for the Project CORRODE



Since October 2017 Stefanie has been a Research Fellow in the ERC-funded ‘CORRODE’ project. While at Bielefeld University she studied Sociology with special focus on social stratification, and then completed a Ph.D. in Applied Social and Economic Research at the Institute for Social and Economic Research, University of Essex, UK. Her thesis, titled ‘Parents between Work and Family Demands in the UK and Germany’, focused on the work-family conflict of new parents. Following this Stefanie worked for 18 months as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Southampton in the Fertility and Family strand of the Centre for Population Change. Her research interests include labour market and family research, as well as longitudinal research methods. Stefanie is working within the CORRODE project on the consequences, from a longitudinal perspective, of labour market insecurities for people’s demographic behaviour.
