Anne-Kathrin Kronberg, PhD
I am an Assistant Professor in Sociology and Organization Science at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. Before coming to Charlotte, I completed my Ph.D. at Emory University in Atlanta and worked as postdoctoral fellow at Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany. My research examines how organizations shape career outcomes. Career outcomes include income, promotions, changing employers, and the decision to stay in a specific occupation. So far, all my research focused on employees within large organizations. However, the nature of work is evolving quickly, and more people work as freelancers in the Platform or Gig Economy. My recent research addresses this change and aims to understand new forms of work.
