BIOGRAPHICAL STATEMENT

Josef is a quantitatively oriented comparative sociologist with a focus on education. His recent work sheds light on an increasingly important new form of inequality—popularly known as the digital divide—by examining the socioeconomic and gender inequalities in use of the Internet for educating adolescents. Much of his scholarship centers on how macro-structural forces like human capital investment and income inequality influence the role of digital technology and the life chances of 15-year-old students. His recent publication addresses how social, economic, and political dynamics within 55 countries affect their ability to reduce the digital divide for youth, using the OECD Programme for International Student Assessment data (PISA). Using a life-course perspective, he is also interested in examining a wide range of behaviors, academic and non-academic, including young adults’ online behaviors, fertility intentions, and sexual behaviors.


Josef is currently working on several projects. The primary project explores cross-national variations in the relationships between computer use, Internet literacy (online searching skills), and academic achievement (performance in reading, math, and science). In the long term, he plans to take a closer look at the intersection of international development and digital inequality, and addresses how different development strategies and social conditions enhance or limit the benefits of computer use among students in poor regions of the world. A second project applies the life course perspective and examines variations in the fertility intentions and childbearing outcome (e.g., the timing of first births) of young adults in Taiwan.
