Welcome to my website! 

I am a PhD student at the European University Institute (EUI). My thesis is about differences in mental health trajectories between immigrants and natives, and on the association between transnational family separation and mental health. My broader research interests include social stratification, life course research, mental health inequalities, and immigrants’ selectivity.

I obtained a double Master’s degree in Sociology and Social Research at the universities of Trento and of Tilburg, and a double Bachelor’s degree in International Studies and in Sociology at the universities of Trento and of Nantes. Before starting the PhD, I worked as an assistant of the Methodology group of the European Values Study (at Tilburg University) and as a Junior Researcher at the University of Groningen (department of Economic Geography).

Here you will find the list of my publications, the abstract of the articles I am currently working on (–> “Work in Progress”), my CV, and how to contact me if you have questions or comments about any aspect of my work.
