Profile

Biography

I joined the department as a Lecturer in Sociology in 2020. I was previously a researcher at the French Institute for Demographic Studies (INED) and hold a PhD in Sociology from Sciences Po in Paris (2016).

My research focuses on migration, residential segregation, neighborhood effects, social stratification, race/ethnicity and discrimination. I use quantitative methods and have a strong interest in longitudinal data analysis.
