**Jonathan Mijs is a Veni Fellow at Erasmus University Rotterdam.**
Previously, Jonathan was an EU Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow.

He earned his PhD in Sociology from Harvard University in 2017.
His *Disconnected Inequality* project investigates how people across the Atlantic make sense of inequality, and how their beliefs in turn fuel feelings of sympathy and solidarity with fellow citizens, inform their policy attitudes and motivate their political behavior.
