In his interdisciplinary PhD thesis titled "Dealing with Demographic Stress in Childhood: Parental Death and the Transition to Adulthood in the Netherlands, 1850-1940", he studied quantitatively how families and children responded to parental death and under which circumstances this potential threat to well-being was most harmful and disruptive.

Currently, he is involved in the construction of the Historical Database Suriname and Curacao which aims to make lifecourses of all inhabitants of Suriname and Curacao from about 1830 to 1950 available in one large demographic database.
