I am an Associate Professor of Sociology in the Department of Social Sciences at the University Carlos III of Madrid, and a fellow at the Carlos III-Juan March Institute (IC3JM). I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from the University Pompeu Fabra.
I examine men and women’s occupational mobility, the career dynamics of occupational minorities, and workplace inequalities. More specifically, I study the mechanisms of exclusion encountered by both men and women seeking non-traditional jobs. My work has appeared in Social Forces, Gender and Society, Work and Occupations, and Sociological Perspectives, among other academic journals.
Lately, I have begun studying the behavioral dynamics of women and men in social networks. I seek to understand to what extent social media represents an opportunity for gender equality or merely reproduces the inequalities of the offline-world, thereby generating a virtual glass ceiling.
