Assistant Professor
About

Between 2013 and 2016 I carried out my first project as PI (funded by AXA Research Fund). Since 2016, I have been an Assistant Professor at Bocconi University, participating as PI or team member in different international research projects, and with responsibilities in two different scientific associations (European Association for Population Studies and Italian Association for Population Studies).

Research interests

My research interests lie in the areas of sociology of the family, fertility and life course research, social capital and networks. Moreover I have been working at the intersection between health and social sciences focusing on adolescents’ health behaviors, children disability and subjective well-being.
