Research

My research pursues both historical and contemporary perspectives on various academic discourses and fields. It touches on topics like power and social inequality, academic knowledge and careers, subjectivity and performativity, and evaluation and boundaries.

Currently I am mostly working on the projects below:

Academic socialization at the postdoc stage

Evaluation and social inequality in academia

Towards a sociology of social sciences and humanities

Some older projects I am still occupied with occasionally include:

Professorial appointment procedures

Academic obituaries

Centralized research performance assessment
