Research interests

My research interests focus on family demography (life–course analysis, fertility, transition to adulthood, family formation and disruption) and its links with well-being, time use, gender diversity and migration in a policy and welfare state perspective.

I am author of numerous papers published in international scientific journals and of books in Italian about “women, job market and fertility” and “demographic trap” in Italy for the general public.
