Dirk Witteveen

Sociologist of Economic Inequality and Education

I'm a sociologist at the University of Oxford. My research focuses on economic inequality, racial and ethnic inequities, immigration, social mobility and stratification, higher education, mental health, and incarceration. I use computational and quantitative methods, but I retain a broad interest in qualitative methods and social science theory. Currently, I teach sociological theory for undergraduates and a quantitative replication course for graduate students. This academic year (2022-2023), I'm also a Visiting Scholar at the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies at Harvard University. I obtained a PhD in Sociology from the Graduate Center, City University of New York. I previously was a Postdoctoral Prize Fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford.
