Nhat An Trinh


I am a sociologist at the Department of Social Sciences and member of the Emmy-Noether Research Group MyWealth at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

My research focuses on trends, causes, and consequences of social inequality from an intra- and intergenerational perspective. I am interested in examining how disadvantage emerges within the family, develops over the life-course, and is transmitted from parents to children. Most of my work draws on large-scale, respresentative household survey data and has a comparative outlook.

Before coming to Berlin, I completed a DPhil in Social Policy at the Department of Social Policy and Intervention and Wolfson College, University of Oxford. My doctoral research was funded by the German National Academic Scholarship Foundation and won the Barnett Prize for best paper as well as the ISA RC28 Alan C. Kerckhoff Travel Award.
