Susanne Täuber is an expert in moral motivation and defensive inaction. As a social psychologist working in Economics and Business, her research is interdisciplinary and spans questions of inequality, justice, trust, polarization, identity, and conflict. Täuber applies her research to understand the discrepancy between policy and actual progress, for instance with respect to health disparities between groups with low and high socio-economic status. In an NWO-funded project, Täuber demonstrated how the moralization of health polarizes society. She works with many organziations and the municipality in projects such as the "Healthy Livingroom".
I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics, Econometrics and Finance Department at the University of Groningen. My main research interests lie in the field of applied microeconomics. In particular, I am interested in labor, migration, development and education economics. My current research focuses on immigrants in the US, with a focus on human capital transmission, occupational networks and relative position of immigrant groups on the labor market as well as labor force participation of women in the Netherlands. With respect to public health, I am interested in the interplay of health and the labor market. In particular I'm interested in how flexible employment forms mediate the adverse effects of health on labor market outcomes.
