About

I’m a sociologist interested in all the ways families are connected to inequality. Currently, I’m a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Sociology at Utrecht University, working in the GENPARENT project.

My research interests lie mainly in the areas of social stratification and family dynamics and include union formation, marriage markets, the gendered division of labor and, more generally, the several forms of inequality between and within families.

I hold a Ph.D. in Sociology from the Institute of Social and Political Studies of the Rio de Janeiro State University. Before joining Utrecht University, I was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute.
