I’m a Research Fellow in Sociology at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. I am currently engaged in the project: “Determinants of the emergence of gender-specific patterns of competencies and decision making over the educational career in Germany”. From 2012 to 2015 I worked at the University of Bamberg and at the European University Institute as Research Fellow for the project “Changes in gender-specific educational trajectories and their consequences for job entry and careers of men and women in Germany”. The projects study gender-specific disparities in different stages of the educational and occupational career throughout the life course and at various transition points. They are included in the DFG Priority Programme 1646 and allow the use of the NEPS (National Educational Panel Study) data. In the past years I published articles on the topic of gender and education in Germany on peer reviewed journals.
I defended my PhD thesis at the University of Trento. The title of the thesis is: “Contextual effects on the educational expectations and aspirations of immigrants’ children and natives in Italy and Europe”. During my PhD, I worked as associate researcher at the Dondena Centre for Research on Social Dynamics (Bocconi University of Milan, Italy). I developed a project on the analysis of data on human capital of immigrants’ children and second generations in Italy, proposing a comparison with the Italian children. I’m also involved on a project about child mortality in Veneto region during the XIX century (CHILD), at the University of Padova, Italy.
Sono Research Fellow in Sociologia all’Istituto Universitario Europeo a Firenze.
Collaboro ad un progetto tedesco: “Determinants of the emergence of gender-specific patterns of competencies and decision making over the educational career in Germany”. Tra il 2012 e il 2015 ho lavorato all’Università di Bamberg e all’Istituto Universitario Europeo al progetto: Changes in gender-specific educational trajectories and their consequences for job entry and careers of men and women in Germany”. In entrambi i progetti, parte del Priority Programme 1646, finanziato dall’ente tedesco DFG, ho studiato le disuguaglianze di genere nelle varie fasi della vita lavorativa e scolastica.
Durante la mia carriera accademica ho lavorato, inoltre, sulle aspettative di istruzione delle prime e seconde generazioni in Italia (tesi dottorato all’Università di Trento, facoltà di Sociologia). Dal 2008 collaboro ad un progetto di demografia storica dell’Università di Padova: CHILD, Collecting Hasburgical Information about Life and Death.
Sono appassionata di arte, scrittura e fotografia.
