Since 2021 I am a post doctoral researcher at the European University Institute , in the project: Perinatal Health and Transitions to adulthood.  My main research interests are: social stratification, children development, parental response, health, fetal origin, quantitative methods, and causal inference

I’ve also been a PhD researcher at the EUI. In my dissertation, supervised by Fabrizio Bernardi, I investigate social origin differences in birth endowments. 

At the EUI, I also co-coordinated the Inequality Working Group.

Before starting my PhD, I obtained a MA in Sociology and Social Research from the University of Trento, a MS in Sociology from the University of Tilburg, and a BA in Social Sciences from the University of Pisa.
