    Biography

    Personal Statement

    I am a post-doctoral research associate working on the PartnerLife Project (http://partnerlifeproject.org/) which studies the interrelationship between partner relationships, residential relocations and housing in the life course. It is a three-year joint project (2014–2016) between the Universities of Liverpool, Cologne, and Groningen. The UK part of the research is funded by the ESRC.

    I hold a PhD in social statistics and demography from the University of Southampton. My PhD research investigated the intersection between partnership experiences and the transition to motherhood in several European countries and the United States using multi-state event history models. My background is in sociology and demography; I studied at Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest, Hungary, at Utrecht University, the Netherlands and before my PhD I participated in the European Doctoral School of Demography (EDSD) hosted by the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock, Germany, and the Centre for Economic Demography at Lund University, Sweden.
