Florence Lebert has a PhD in Sociology from the University of Fribourg. She jointed FORS in 2009. She is mainly working for the Swiss Household Panel, but has also been involved in other projects such as VOTO, the Swiss voting surveys.


Florence Lebert is experienced in survey research, the development of questionnaires, training of interviewers, monitoring of fieldwork and other domains of data collection. She regularly organises workshops teaching data management with the Swiss Household Panel data.
In her PhD, she has mainly focused on the interface between family and employment. Her special interest: perceived job insecurity and how concerned individuals and their families deal with their condition, for instance by changing jobs or taking further training.
