I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the Center for Demographic Studies and a guest researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research. After obtaining my PhD in Demography from the London School of Economics and Political Science, I completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania.
My research lies in the areas of demography, health, social policy and international development. I use quantitative methods to study topics related to fertility and family change, child health and sexual and reproductive health, and how social policies affect these outcomes. My latest research focuses on the relationship between socioeconomic inequality and population dynamics, the variation and gender differences in family formation and the consequences of policy changes on health and families in Latin America, Africa and Asia.
