Research Fellow, University of St Andrews

I graduated with a B.A. in Geography from the Autonomous University of Barcelona in 2001, having already become a junior research assistant at the Centre for Demographic Studies. In 2002, I obtained my MA in Demography (Cum Laude) from the Department of Geography and the Centre for Demographic Studies at Autonomous University of Barcelona, and was awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship which allowed me to pursue my MSc in Social Research Methods and Statistics in 2003 at the Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research (University of Manchester), leading also to my PhD in Census and Survey Research in 2008 (University of Manchester).

Upon the completion of my PhD, I have held research postdoctoral posts at the Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research (ESRC – Understanding Population Trends and Processes Programme), the Centre for Demographic Studies (Juan de la Cierva Fellowship), and the Centre for Housing Research (University of St Andrews). I have also enjoyed visiting fellowships at the Office of Population Research (Princeton University) and at the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing (University of Oxford).

My current research focuses on geographies of fertility and family change; health inequalities and intergenerational transmission of health; and spatialities of ageing and migration (internal and international).
