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). 

I am the principal investigator of “Inequality between reality and perception: socio-economic status, gender and immigration in Italy” (IneqPer), a project funded by the Italian Ministry of the University and the Research (MUR) within PRIN 2022 PNRR scheme. I am also the Co-Pi of PRIN 2022 project” Maternal guilt: Measurement, correlates, and policy solutions in the Italian context” (MatGuilt).

Previously I was an interim professor of sociology  (W3-Vertretungsprofessur) at the University of Konstanz,  a research fellow  at the Department of Social and Political Sciences at the European University Institute (EUI) and a senior researcher at the  Research Institute for the Evaluation of Public Policies ( IRVAPP). I  held visiting positions  in the cluster “Politics of Inequality” (University of Konstanz),    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).
