I am a PhD student in Sociology and Methodology of Social Research at the University of Milan. I hold a BA and an MA in Sociology from the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile. My main research interests are distributive justice, social stratification, quantitative research methods, social network analysis, economic sociology, and international comparative research. My work has been published in journals such as Frontiers in Sociology and the Spanish Journal of Sociology.
With my doctoral thesis project, I analyze the extent to which the socioeconomic segregation of people's social environments affects their attitudes toward inequality across contemporary societies. In a first phase, I conduct comparative research to establish the main trends using international survey data. Secondly, using richer information, such as social network and geospatial data, I study the impact on how people perceive and explain the inequality of personal network segregation in Spain, neighborhood segregation in Chile, and school segregation in Italy.
I am doing a doctoral visiting period at the COALESCE Lab to study the effect of Spanish interpersonal segregation, using ego-network analysis and data from the BRIDGES project. With this, I intend to improve the methods, analyses, and contributions of my doctoral dissertation.
