Welcome Sarah Berkinshaw

We are delighted to welcome Sarah Berkinshaw, our newest doctoral candidate in the sub-project of the URPP Human Reproduction Reloaded called «Human Reproduction in Societies and Markets».

In her dissertation, Sarah is investigating the causes of gender segregation in academic subjects and subsequent career choices. In particular, she examines how preferences for certain subjects and professions are shaped by values and role perceptions that have developed through social background and gender-specific socialization.

Dear Sarah – we are so pleased that you decided to continue your studies with us after completing your Master's degree in Sociology & Political Science at the University of Zurich! Here's to an enriching and fulfilling academic journey. May your time with us be filled with curiosity, resilience, and moments of profound insight. 

Kind regards,
The team at SUZ
