My main research interest is around life course transitions identifying and studying the impact of events and circumstances on life trajectories. I am particularly interested in family demography and studies around social-determinants of health. Moreover, I am interested in applying and developing advanced statistical tools to better understanding individual behavior and attitudes.

The papers that have been published are available here. I have published on different topics ranging from statistical approaches for longitudinal and life course data (here and here), mutual effects across related individuals (here), critical life events (here), physical and mental health in the life course (here and here).

I am currently involved in several research projects. Here below is a snapshot of my current research. If interested in any of these topics, do not hesitate to drop me a line!

  • child disability as a source of disadvantage for the family
  • mental health and its impact over the life course
  • migration and population change – push/pull factors
