Hello. I am a quantitative sociologist who studies inequality, particularly related to families, education, and gender. I am  a research associate at the Department of Social and Political Sciences at the European University Institute (EUI) and an adjunct professor in the School of Economics and Management at the University of Florence. I am also a co-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.

Previously, I was 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).
