We mainly investigate influences of the residential environment on internal migration, life chances and well-being, as well as reasons for a meat-free diet. In our research, life course position and social class membership play an important role.
For example, we investigate the extent to which greenery in large cities contributes to the quality of life, and to which degree the desire to live in a green area triggers relocation decisions. We are also investigating whether the social composition of the residential environment influences parents in their decision as to which secondary school they send their child to. Other projects address the question of whether there were or are gender differences in home office use before and during the Corona pandemic, and how these can be explained. Furthermore, we examine influences of the social environment and social values on whether people eat a meat-free diet.
