I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Sociology at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY, USA). I hold a B.A. in Sociology from University of Granada (Granada, Spain) and a M.A. in Sociology and Demography from Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona, Spain). My research focuses on questions related to social demography, sociology of health, spatial inequality and human mobility.

Before joining the Department of Sociology at Cornell I worked in a wide range topics, from the impact of economic recessions on mortality inequalities to global inequalities in the production of COVID-19 inequalities research, or inequalities in participation in Mosquito Alert–a citizen science project that studies vector mosquito species of concern.

I approach my research questions from a systems thinking perspective, accounting for the multidimensional, interrelated, and dynamic nature of inequality. Thus, I like using robust and rigorous quantitative methods.
