Ludovica is currently a Research Associate at the Education and Family Department and holds a Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowship.
Ludovica is primarily a quantitative social scientist, with experience in qualitative work, and mixed and interdisciplinary methods. She has a broad research interest in the design, delivery and effects of social policies in relation to poverty and inequality. Her work has focused in particular on two areas: 1) inequalities in childhood, and the way diverging developmental trajectories may relate to social policies affecting family and education services, housing and neighbourhoods; 2) gender inequalities in the labour market, and in particular the institutional mechanisms that contribute to the (low) monetary rewards attached to care occupations.
She has a PhD in Social Policy and a Master in Public Administration (MPA) both from the London School of Economics.
