I am a sociologist interested in social stratification patterns, mobility effects and inequalities. Other research interests include statistical analysis and quantitative methods for cross-sectional and longitudinal data, labor market dynamics and educational credentials.
I joined the Research Unit INSIDE in September 2018 as a Ph.D. student. My doctoral project, under the supervision of Prof. Robin Samuel, aims to deepen the understanding related to social mobility effects on health inequalities.
The doctoral project addresses:
- the current methodological concerns in the literature of social stratification,
- the implications of up- and downward mobility considering individual conditions (i.e. educational level, occupational status, and income),
- how macro-structural institutions affect the inequality of opportunity on health.
Prior to joining the University of Luxembourg, I obtained an M.Sc. in Sociology and Social Research (Social Inequalities) at the University of Trento in March 2018. My Master Thesis focused on the time-varying and joint mechanism of: a) radical shift of the mode of economic production and b) educational stratification on income inequalities in China.
