Subin Chang is a Ph.D. student in sociology and a research fellow within the research project RISS since June 2022. She arrived in Germany in 2018 with a bachelor's degree in sociology and German language and literature from Sungkyunkwan University (South Korea) and obtained her master's degree in sociology in May 2022 at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. She specializes in work, family, gender, and inequalities. From the life course perspective, her research looks at (dis-)similarities in work-family trajectories of parents and their adult same-sex children. Further, her research compares occupational trajectories of same-sex siblings from different SES backgrounds and regions (East and West Germany). Methodologically, she draws on longitudinal data (The German Socio- Economic Panel) and employs sequence analysis and a variety of other quantitative methods.
