About me

I hold a PhD in Sociology and Social Research at University of Trento (Italy) and a MA in Applied Social Sciences at the Catholic University of Milan (Italy) with a specialization in methodology of social sciences. Since June 2017, I’m Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow at the Institute of Government and Public Policies (IGOP) of the Universitat Autònoma Barcelona, studying gender and social vulnerability in an intersectional perspective (see VINE project). I have previously worked in EU Funded project FLOWS (2011-2014), WILCO (2011-2014) and CrESSI (2015/2016). In 2015, I was research fellow at the Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Foundation, in project Spazio Lavoro. My main interests of research are focused on labour transformation in the post-industrial society, and in particular: marginalised groups in labour markets (women and young); social innovation; emerging professions.

I’m the Early Career Researchers representative at the ISA RC52 Sociology of Professional Groups, also managing the ISA RC52 Unofficial Blog. I’m the Social Media Manager in the editorial staff of the Italian Society of Economic Sociology (SISEC).

Outside academia, I have so many interests and activities that it would be unfair to cite just a few of them. But you can always write an email to me and I will be happy to chat a little bit with you in front of a good coffee.

I support the #openscience movement. My publications are available for free consultation and download on the Digital Document Deposit offered by Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
