Anne-Kathrin Kronberg is an assistant professor in Sociology and Organization Science at the UNC Charlotte. Before coming to Charlotte, she completed her Ph.D. at Emory University and worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany.
Her research examines how organizations shape careers and career outcomes. These outcomes include income, promotions, external employer changes, and the decision to stay in a specific field. She is particularly interested in how careers differ by gender and race. In past and current projects, she has examined how firms’ policy, culture, and composition shape outcomes. For this purpose, she drew on a variety of research designs, including longitudinal HR data of a single employer, publicly available linked employer-employee data on many organizations, and qualitative interviews with individual managers and employees. Her research has been published in Social Forces, Work and Occupations, and Mobilization, and she received funding from the German Research Foundation (DFG).
Kronberg taught graduate and undergraduate courses, such as Sociology of Work, Sociology of Labor Markets, Organizational Theory, and Inequality in the Workplace. Additionally, she enjoys teaching Research Methods and Introduction to Multivariate Regression.
