▷ socio-digital inequalities,
I'm currently a final-year PhD candidate at Radboud University with the Interuniversity Center for Social Science Theory and Methodology, on a project titled ICT-resources and social inequality in student performance. What roles do family-, school- and country-level factors play? I'm slated to submit my dissertation by the end of February, and am interested in academic jobs.My research interests revolve around social, digital and educational inequality, youths, information communication technology (ICT) and their policy implications.Notable research: Loh, R.
