CV Rosario Scandurra


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.
