Learn more about my research and me. I am a postdoc fellow the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES) at the University of Mannheim, Germany. Lars_2015

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Mannheim in June 2016. In my dissertation thesis, I investigated the interplay of young immigrants’ host country identification and their friendships with natives.

I have contributed to the DFG-funded project “Friendship and Identity in School”, which is a longitudinal study of adolescents’ social networks and their ethnic identifications. For the project, I have developed a measure of immigrants’ national and ethnic identity, which is available via ZIS – Gesis.

My work appeared in journals such as European Sociological Review, Social Networks, Social Science Research, and International Migration Review.
