Rossella Bozzon is assistant professor in Sociology at the Department of Social and Political Sciences of the University of Milan, Italy. She holds a PhD in Sociology and Social Research from the University of Trento. From 2011 to 2013 she was a member of the ERC project FamIne – Families of Inequalities, and she then started working within the European FP7 project GARCIA – Gendering the Academy and Research: Combating Career Instability and Asymmetries (2014-2017).
Through participation in interdisciplinary research projects, she has developed a scientific profile able to converse with different theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches. Her research interests include life courses and labour market transformations, poverty and economic deprivation dynamics, gender inequalities and quantitative methods. Her work has been published in, among others, Journal of European Social Policy, European Societies, and European Educational Research Journal.
As a member of the SHARE team, Rossella worked as postdoctoral researcher at the Work and Employment Relations Division of the Leeds University Business School (June 2018 – January 2019). She then moved to the University of Milan, where she has been responsible for the statistical analysis of the project. In particular, she is conducting a study on how the hybrid areas of work are represented, classified and measured in (official) statistics. She is also carrying out comparative analyses on how changes in (solo) self-employment are affecting social inequalities in Europe. She co-authored (2020), with the other members of the team, the article ‘Hybrid Areas of Work Between Employment and Self-Employment: Emerging Challenges and Future Research Directions’ in the journal Frontiers in Sociology.
