Research Interests

As a Ph.D. student in the SNF-project Young people's transition to Gymnasium and the role of private and public supplementary learning programs, I am interested in the interfaces between social inequalities and marketization processes at educational transitions of young people in Zurich.

Generally, I am interested in the following areas:

  • Geographies of education and youth
  • Marketization processes
  • Discourse theory, logics of knowledge production
  • Qualitative methods and cartography
