Since 2008, Margreet de Looze has worked in the research group Cultural Diversity & Youth within the department of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences (ISS). After her PhD and post-doc research on the social and cultural context of adolescent risk behaviour (smoking, drinking alcohol, cannabis use and early sexual behaviour), she is currently employed as Assistant Professor.

Her current research focuses on the role of gender equality in the health and well-being of youth in Europe and North America. For that purpose, she is working in close collaboration with the international Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study. Within this study, she is the chair of the Gender Focus Group.
