Irena Kogan holds a chair in comparative sociology at the University of Mannheim. She received her training in Pedagogics (Ukraine), Sociology and Anthropology (Israel), and Social Sciences (Germany).  Her research interests are in the area of social inequality, migration research and labour market sociology. In particular, her research focuses on structural and cultural aspects of immigrant integration, transition from school-to-work, as well as the role of human capital and social and cultural resources in these processes. Interest in the role of countries’ institutional characteristics in explaining societal processes drives her research, which is largely internationally comparative. In her studies, Kogan relies on quantitative methods of social research and survey data. Kogan has been involved in a number of large-scale projects. Currently she is co-directing the German part of the “Children of Immigrants Longitudinal Survey in Four European Countries” funded by German Research Foundation. She is a PI in two projects: “Partnership formation in the context of refugee migration” (PARFORM) funded through the ERC Consolidator Grant and “Upwardly mobile through STEM? STEM competences, participation and returns among ethnic minority women and men in Germany” (STEMobile), funded by the Thyssen Foundation. She is also involved in the Horizon2020 project PIONEERED.
