My research has studied educational and skills inequalities and how these inequalities are accumulated during the life course. My work contributes to education and public policy debates focusing on educational opportunities, school-to-work transitions, adult skills accumulation and education segregation. I completed a **master in public and social policies** from the University Pompeu Fabra/Johns Hopkins University (2009) and a master in sociology from the University of Barcelona (2011). I earned my **PhD in sociology at the University of Barcelona.** I was involved as researcher **in more than 10 European projects.** Currently, **I am *Juan de la Cierva Incorporación* postdoctoral fellow** at the department of sociology of the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Pieces of my research have appeared in several international journals.
Mes recherches ont étudié les inégalités d'éducation et de compétences et comment ces inégalités s'accumulent au cours de la vie. Mon travail contribue aux débats sur l'éducation et les politiques publiques axés sur les opportunités éducatives, les transitions école-travail, l'accumulation des compétences des adultes et la ségrégation scolaire. J'ai complété un master en politiques publiques et sociales de l'Université Pompeu Fabra/Université Johns Hopkins (2009) et un master en sociologie de l'Université de Barcelone (2011). J'ai obtenu mon doctorat en sociologie à l'Université de Barcelone. J'ai été impliqué en tant que chercheur dans plus de 10 projets européens. Actuellement, je suis chercheur postdoctoral Juan de la Cierva Incorporación au département de sociologie de l'Université autonome de Barcelone. Des morceaux de mes recherches ont été publiés dans plusieurs revues internationales.
