I am tenured Senior Researcher at Turin University, Affiliate Fellow at Collegio Carlo Alberto and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellow at the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB), Berlin. My research examines how family configurations and ties affect individuals' life courses, emphasizing the role of social background, employment and institutional settings. You can find my recent publications here.
My previous research has analysed the diffusion process of cohabitation; how cohabiting unions may impact the division of household labour and intergenerational relationships; the gendered nature of trade-offs between care work and paid employment (WORKCARE and Striking Storks projects); the economic integration of sub-sharan african migrants in Europe (MAFE project); and how families contribute to shape young people's outcomes in the labour market (STYLE project).
I have been teaching courses on Sociological Analysis, Family Sociology, Labour Sociology, Research Design, Social Research Methods and Event History Analysis.
