Research activity

My research is focused on exploring the ageing process in contemporary societies, using a twofold perspective: demographic and sociological. This line of research can be understood as a combination of two major research themes: 1) the analysis of social factors that condition physical and mental health, well-being and quality of life of the older people, especially appoaching the role of social networks and intergenerational solidarity, and 2) the analysis of ageing as a sociobiographical process and as a structural process, paying attention to the social construction of age and the life-course, as the discourses and stereotypes regarding to old age.
