Hello. I am a sociologist who studies inequality, particularly related to families, education, and gender. I am an assistant professor of sociology (with habilitation as associate professor)  at the University of Pavia (Department of Social and Political Sciences). 

In 2020/21 I was an interim professor of sociology  (W3-Vertretungsprofessur) at the University of Konstanz and a senior fellow in the cluster “Politics of Inequality”.  I spent six years at the Department of Social and Political Sciences at the European University Institute: as a research associate  (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). I  held visiting positions  at University of Turku (INVEST),  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).
