Bio & Contact

I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Sociology at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY, USA). I am also pursuing a graduate minor in Demography from Cornell’s Population Center.

My research is divided in two branches. The first branch focuses on questions related to activity space, health inequality, and social stratification. The second branch focuses on questions related to infectious diseases. I am particularly interested in inequalities in mosquito-vector borne disease outcomes and human-mosquito interactions. From a methodological point of view, I am interested in leveraging spatial, GPS, and individual-level real-time data to understand inequality as a dynamic and relational process.

I believe social reality is highly complex, thus we ought to understand it from a complex system and interdisciplinary perspective. This is reflected in my research, where I have collaborated with professionals from a wide range of disciplines including physics, medicine, or ecology.

Some of my recent work has explored inequalities in daily mobility during the de-escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic in Spain and the effects of economic recessions on mortality inequalities.

I am currently working on two projects: my qualifying paper, which explores the relationship between local and extralocal residential disadvantage and confined activity spaces among older adults in Chicago; and a collaboration with Professor Erin York Cornwell in which we aim to estimate the effect of activity space span and contextual measures on the health of older adults.
