Chair in International Comparative Studies in Social Sciences DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst/German Academic Exchange Service) Bremen International School of Social Sciences University of Bremen, Germany, and Fellow, Hanse Wissenschaftskolleg (Institute for Advanced Study), Delmenhorst, Germany (April–October 2010)
My research and teaching interests include the sociology of education, foundations of higher education, issues of inequality and access, transition across the life course research, and quantitative and qualitative research methods. My research focuses on the intersecting domains of participation in post-secondary education, equality of educational opportunity, and the relationship between institutional structures and individuals as agents from an international comparative perspective. My main research projects are the Paths on Life’s Way study, a 22-year longitudinal study of BC young adults and a related comparison with the Australian Life Patterns longitudinal study.
