I am research fellow at La Statale, University of Milan, within the ERC project DESPO, working on the political and societal changes that have occurred as a consequence of European deindustrialisation.
From January 2020 to March 2021 I was based at the Institut national d'études démographiques (INED) in Paris where I worked on the international project DICE investigating the role of parental background on children educational attainment in France.
My research interests lie at the intersection of economic and sociology. I am broadly interested in i) intergenerational inequality; ii) urban economic sociology; iii) basic income models and post-work scenarios.
More specifically, my current research agenda focuses on understanding the links between parental background and offspring's outcomes, on investigating the relationship between city shape and urban inequality, and on models of universal income under a post-work perspective.
I received a PhD (2020) in applied socio and economic research from the Institute for Socio and Economic Research at the University of Essex and a MSc (2013) in Economics from the University of Trento.
