Biographical note

I obtained the PhD from U. Wisconsin and have taught in the US, Italy and Spain. In addition, I have held numerous guest professorships in Europe and the U.S. I have been elected member of the British Academy and also the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. And I have been awarded the doctor honoris causa award from University of Copenhagen, Roskilde and Oslo. I am research professor at U. Bocconi since 2018.


Research interests

My current research focuses on two themes: One, on family demography and how women’s changing roles influence family dynamics. Two, on social stratification and intergenerational social mobility. I am in particular exploring how social mobility influences demographic outcomes such as partnering and divorce risks.
