Area of expertise, interest, main activities...:
About you (please use English):
I have worked in various labor market sectors on projects generally related to gender, race/ethnicity, and sometimes social class. Trained in both industrial and systems engineering and sociology, my work involves blending deep knowledge of social processes (like gender and other dimensions of difference) with the search for strong methods of understanding. I also like to be familiar with many sources of data and to make graphs to see what stories the data will tell!
