I studied history and sociology, and research and teach in these disciplines. I am honorary research fellow at the International Institute of Social History, and professor of historical sociology in Utrecht.
My chosen field is social inequality world wide from 1500 to the present.
My research on welfare deals with philanthropy, charity, mutual aid, private and social insurance, and the history of risks.
My research on social structure and mobility deals with residential segregation, occupational change, intergenerational mobility, career mobility and partner choice. I am interested in comparative historical studies of work, status and class. I currently hold the ERC Advanced Investigator Grant: `Towards Open Societies? Trends, Variations and Driving Forces of Intergenerational Social Mobility in Europe over the Past Three Centuries”. Towards Open SocietiesLinks
