I am a social demographer (PhD, Universitat Pompeu Fabra), currently appointed at the Centre for Demographic Studies in the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona as a Ramon y Cajal research fellow, and at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra as an adjunct lecturer. I am also a fellow of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Children and Families over the Life Course.
I have substantive expertise in several fields of demographic research –including partnership, fertility, and internal migration– and social inequality research –including housing tenure, labour market participation, and union membership. My research adopts a longitudinal and life course approach, and uses state-of-the-art quantitative methods, including panel data regression, event history analysis, and sequence analysis. Most of my new empirical research involves cross-national comparisons.
I have been a sole chief investigator of a prestigious research grant funded by the German Research Council (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG – Sachbeihilfe, 2015-2017) to conduct a project entitled ‘The Interplay between Gender, Occupations and Family Migration in Germany’. Recently, I have been awarded a Ramon y Cajal Fellowship by the Spanish Government (2017-2022) to conduct a research on the intersections between family transitions and social inequality.
