Educational qualifications: Ph.D in Political and Social Sciences (Universitat Pompeu Fabra)
Research Theme/s: Generations and Life Course, Social Stratification

I am a social demographer (PhD), currently appointed at the Centre for Demographic Studies in the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona as a Ramón y Cajal research fellow, where I act as a head of the Generations and Life Course research group.
I am also a fellow of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Children and Families over the Life Course, and a BiB fellow of the German Federal Institute for Population Research.
I have substantive expertise in several fields of demographic research (e.g. families, spatial mobility) and social inequality research (e.g. housing, labour market outcomes). My research adopts life course and cross-national approaches, and uses state-of-the-art quantitative methods for the analysis of longitudinal data.
I have received funding from the European Research Council (Consolidator Grant, 2022-2027), the German Research Council (Sachbeihilfe, 2015-2017), and the Spanish Government (Ramon y Cajal, 2017-2022; I+D Retos de la Investigación, 2019-2021), among others, to support my research.
