  Researcher for the Project CORRODE


Anna Gerlach (born 1990) is a research assistant in the CORRODE project at the chair for social stratification and social policy since September 2017. She studied political science (B. A.) at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz and subsequently sociology and empirical social research (M. Sc.) at the University of Cologne. In her master thesis, she examined the influence of socioeconomic status on family processes such as relationship conflict and parenting behavior and how child development is affected thereby, using a structural equation model. For this purpose, she used data from the German Family Panel pairfam.

Her research interests include the structure of society and the social inequality; in particular how the socioeconomic status affects everyday life and which dynamics are responsible for the transmission of social inequality from one generation to the next.
