Short bio >

I am working on FAMHEALTH project led by Prof. Emily Grundy. My current research focuses on intergenerational relationships and mental health among older people in Europe. Before joining the LSE, I received a Ph.D. degree in Sociology and Social Research from the University of Trento. My dissertation examines the association between earlier experiences of intergenerational co-residence and later parent-adult child relations in Italy and Sweden. During the PhD I worked as a visiting researcher at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI), and I was involved in teaching activities for the course Methodology for Social Science at the University of Trento. My research interests include also the consequences of divorce, grandparents’ involvement in childcare, and the intergenerational transmission of economic resources.
