Hi there and welcome. My name is Christoph Zangger and I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Sociology at the University of Zurich. My research is concerned with social inequality and intergenerational mobility across the life course, the empirical modeling of social interaction and the estimation of contextual and compositional effects in education, labor markets and politics. I am particularly interested in neighborhood effects on different forms of life chances and the associated methodological problems.

Apart from some of my work, you will also find code and replication data on this website. Questions or comments? Don’t hesitate to knock on my office’s door – or maybe more easily, write me an email: zangger@soziologie.uzh.ch
