About you (please use English):
I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Sociology of the VU University Amsterdam. My PhD project aims to explore significant differences in the participation rates of women in the fields of mathematics, science and technology (MST) in higher tertiary education in the Netherlands and Sweden. This examination takes place by comparing choice patterns of female and male students in these countries. My research interests include education, social mobility, gender, and migration. I hold a master’s degree in European and International Law and have a professional background in policy analysis and research.
