Biography

Hello. I am a quantitative sociologist who studies inequality, particularly related to families, education, and gender. I am a senior fellow in the cluster “Politics of Inequality” at the University of Konstanz and an adjunct professor in the School of Economics and Management at the University of Florence. I am also a principal investigator of the project “Gender inequalities in academia: Biases in hiring or promotion” , together with Klarita Gërxhani and Fabienne Liechti.  The project relies on experimental methods to study gender inequality in academic positions. In 2021, I will be an INVEST visiting fellow, at the University of Turku.

Previously, I was  a research associate at the Department of Social and Political Sciences at the European University Institute (2019), a Max Weber fellow in Sociology (2016-2018), and a senior research scientist on the EDUlife project (2014-2016).  I joined the EUI after working as a senior researcher at IRVAPP (Research Institute for the Evaluation of Public Policies) (2011-2012) and a lecturer at the University of Trento  (2011-2013). I  held visiting positions  at Princeton University (Office of Population Research) and NYU (Department of Sociology).

I obtained my PhD in Sociology and Social Research at the University of Trento (Italy). I hold  a Master’s degree in Economics from the University of Glasgow (UK) and a Bsc in Economics from the University of Belgrade (Serbia).
