I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at Tilburg University. From September 2024 onwards, I will take up the position as Assistant Professor in Digital Sociology at the University of Cambridge.

I am a sociologist of class and digital labor. In my work, I have analyzed the subjectivity of tech workers, the professionalization of data scientists, and the changing class relations in digital capitalism. Currently, I am finalizing a book titled “The Social Codes of Tech Workers” with MIT Press. Alongside this research, I also examine the rise of the green tech industry as well as ecological class divides and the new forms of distinction that correspond to them.

I completed my PhD in sociology at the University of Cambridge in 2023 after studying sociology and political science at Humboldt-University Berlin, Duke University, and the University of Kiel.
