I am a PhD researcher in the Department of Social and Political Sciences at the European University Institute, Florence. I hold a Master degree in Sociology from University of Oxford and a Bachelor degree in Sociology from Goldsmiths, University of London.
I am interested in social stratification, educational returns, inequality in educational opportunities, internal migration, labour market and quantitative data analysis.
In my doctoral project, I investigate the mechanisms behind the effect of social origins on the labour market outcomes of the graduates. With the expansion of higher education, more individuals from different social backgrounds benefit of higher education but this is not translated in equalising the chances of the individuals on the labour market. In my doctoral project, I change the subjects of inequality by not asking why individuals from lower classes cannot make it but rather asking why individuals from upper class can make it.
