I am post-doctoral researcher at the Chair of Social Stratification and Social Policy at the Institute of Sociology, Goethe University Frankfurt. In 2017 I obtained a Ph.D. from the School of Social Sciences, University of Trento, for my thesis on Social and Ethnic Stratification in Education in Comparative Perspective. I completed my master studies at the University of Trento too, with a dissertation on Social Inequalities in the Educational Careers of Italian students.
During my doctoral studies I had the pleasure to spend a visiting period at the University of Cologne- Graduiertenkolleg Soclife and to collaborate in research projects of the Department of Sociology and Social Research (University of Trento), the Department of Political and Sociological Sciences (University of Bologna), FbK-IRVAPP (Research Institute for the Evaluation of Public Policies) and IPRASE (Institute for Educational Research and scientific testing).
My research interests lay in the field of Social Stratification and Social Mobility, with a specific focus on the educational and occupational inequalities on the basis of individuals' migration background and social origins. My research is devoted to the understanding of the mechanisms that allow the existence -and the reproduction- of economic and social inequalities, and of the phenomenon of migration and its effects on both the individuals' life cycles and the social stratification in the countries of destination.
