Research Interests

My research interests lie in the gray area that exists between economics and sociology, focusing on work and employment issues such as:

-The division of labour and change in employment structures.
-Job quality and working conditions.
-Technical change, work and employment
-Wage inequality
-European labour markets and labour regulation
