Gonzalo Franetovic, PhD student in sociology at the University of Milan, will join us this fall at the COALESCE Lab. He is working on understanding how personal networks shape perceptions of inequality, and our BRIDGES data caught his interest. He is therefore working on a paper using the BRIDGES data, which will become a part of his thesis.
Marc Alcalà i Rams, who was already with us as a research assistant interviewing people and transcribing interviews for the PATCHWORK and INCLUSIVITY projects, has now become our lab manager. He will also start as a PhD student in Social and Cultural Anthropology this year. His research interest is in Korean migrants' changing identities and notions of nationhood, and he will adopt a relational perspective on this topic.
Noé Gras Aura, who was also a research assistant in the PATCHWORK, INCLUSIVITY, and DIMCOM projects, is now doing his Master studies, and will be writing his MA thesis within the group. He is still active as a member of our group.
