I am an Assistant Professor (Lecturer) at the Department of Social Policy of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
I obtained my PhD in Sociology from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, (Barcelona, Spain) in 2008 and prior to joining LSE, I worked as a Post-Doctoral Researcher at Yale University's Center for Research on Inequalities and the Life Course (CIQLE).
My research examines the interplay between family processes (divorce, marriage and fertility) and economic outcomes (wealth/savings, labor supply and entrepreneurship). In my research, processes that shape family contexts over the life-course constitute a focal point for explaining both the economic behavior of households and overall inequality.
My publications may be found in academic journals both in the field of economics; such as Journal of Human Resources, European Economic Review, Small Business Economics and in the fields of Sociology/ Demography, such as Annual Review of Sociology, Demographic Research, among others. My research has also been covered by the media outlets such as Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, and New York Times.
At LSE, I teach one of the core graduate courses at the MPA (Master of Public Administration) program at the Institute of Public Affairs (IPA).
