Portrait of Benjamin RoscheI am an early career academic interested in understanding social structure from a geographical, temporal, and network perspective. I am particularly concerned with the role of social networks in the genesis of social inequality. To this end, I employ methods of quantitative empirical social research (esp. multilevel and survival analysis), social network analysis, and computational methods.

I was awarded a B.A. in Sociology and Economics (minor) from the University of Mannheim (Germany) and an M.Sc. in Sociology (with distinction) as well as an M.Sc. in Methods and Statistics from the University of Utrecht (Netherlands). Since August 2018, I am pursuing a Ph.D. in Sociology at Cornell University (USA).
