I am a DPhil candidate in Social Policy. My primary research interest lies in investigating how education policies relate to societal inequalities. Hence, my MSc thesis investigated the relationship between stratification (the degree of grouping of students into separate schools/programmes), standardisation (the degree of centralisation of an education system) and the gender gap in expressing STEM career aspirations. I will explore similar topics in my DPhil, focusing more closely on the role of social origin.
I hold a BSc (Hons, summa cum laude) degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences (Policy Science) from Leiden University College, and have recently completed an MSc (Dist) in Comparative Social Policy at the University of Oxford.
