Personal profile

Research interests

I am lecturer at Tilburg University at the  department of sociology, and supervisor MA theses at at the FHR Lim A Po Institute for Social Studies (Paramaribo, Surinam). I teach on sociology, theory, gender, work-life issues, welfare states, and the sociology of work. My main research is cross-national research regarding work-family arrangements in organizations in different welfare state regimes. I co-edited of a number of books: Flexible Working, Organizational Change and the Integration of Work and Personal life (Edward Elgar, 2005), and Diversity, Standardization and Social Transformation. Gender, Ethnicity and Equality in Europe (Ashgate, 2011). I co-wrote with Joanne van der Leun and John Macionis a Dutch introduction to sociology (Pearson, 2010; 2014; new ediion 2019). Currently, my research interests include the well-being of employees, work pressive & occupational stress, the work-life balance of employees and role of managers, and boundary management in relation to work-life issues.
