About meFoto Franca 2 - Copy

I am Senior Lecturer at the University of Amsterdam, Department of Political Science. My research is about political decision making in relation to childcare, elderly care and domestic work, the representation of precarious workers in such decision making, and the role of migrant workers as care providers. You can read more about my research here.

At the UvA I am Program Director of the Social Science Research Master. In addition I teach in the Political Science Bachelor and Master programmes. My teaching focusses on qualitative research methods and on the politics around social policy. I also chair the Examinations Board for the UvA Research Master Programmes in Social Sciences, International Development Studies and Urban Studies. You can read more about my teaching here.

I obtained my PhD in Social and Political Sciences at the European University Institute in Florence, where I wrote a dissertation the role of migrant care workers in different European welfare regimes. Subsequently, I worked as researcher at the University of Bremen and at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, where I was affiliated with the research projects ‘Migration Law as a Family Matter‘ and ‘TransJudFare‘.

Here’s my CV, including a full list of publications.
