Biography

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. In my doctoral research I combine social stratification, gender, and migration theories to explain labour market inequalities. I am also a Visiting Researcher at the Centre for Demographic Studies (CED) in Barcelona,  Spain; and a Research Associate at the International and European Forum on Migration Research (FIERI) in Torino, Italy.

I hold an MPhil degree with distinction in Sociology from the University of Cambridge, and a MSc degree in Social Research Methods, with a second concentration on Social Policy, from the Methodology Institute at the London School of Economics. I obtained my BA degree in Sociology at the University of Barcelona, and I have been an official student at the University of California Berkeley (US), the Manchester Metropolitan University (UK), the University of Essex (UK), and Pompeu Fabra University (ES). I have also worked as a research associate at the Migration Policy Centre in Florence, Italy.

Outside academia one of my main passions is to develop and produce documentary films. I have produced ‘Kursaal, la força de la gent’ (2017) [Kursaal, the strength of the people], and I am currently producing and co-writing ‘Beirut, la vie en rose’ (expected 2018).
