Biographical note

I am Professor of Demography at Department of Social and Political Science at Bocconi University; Fellow at the DONDENA Center for Research on Social Dynamics and Public Policy at Bocconi University and at the Center for Demography and Ecology at University of Wisconsin-Madison.

I am an expert of Population Europe, among the Leading Women Scientists of AcademiaNet, and Associate Editor for European Journal of Population and Population Review.

I am also in the editorial board of Neodemos, an online Italian blog on population, society and politics.


Research interests

My research interests focus on family demography (life–course analysis, fertility, transition to adulthood, family formation and disruption) and its links with well-being, time use, gender diversity and migration in a policy and welfare state perspective.

I am author of numerous papers published in international scientific journals and of books in Italian about “women, job market and fertility” and “demographic trap” in Italy for the general public.
