Research fields: Population Economics, Fertility, Female Employment, Family Policies, Income Dynamics, Panel Data Econometrics
Main research questions:
How are demographic dynamics and income variations linked to each other, from a macro- as well as a micro-economic perspective? What is the role of female employment? How do public institutions interfere with these relations?
What are the current socio-economic differentials in fertility behaviour that exist today in European countries? How can they be measured? What are their determinants?
