Renske Keizer (1983) studies the role of the family and in particular the role of fathers in the occurrence and persistence of social inequality. Her research straddles sociology, demography, pedagogical sciences and developmental psychology. In addition to winning several major research grants in recent years, she is also the recipient of the Dutch ‘Bessensap’ Award for the way in which she presents her research to the public. She regularly gives lectures to policymakers and publicises her research in the media. During her time at The Young Academy, she wants to contribute to discussions of science funding, career policy, interdisciplinarity, and indicators and quantifiability.
