Maria Giulia Montanari is a research fellow at the department of Architecture and Urban Studies (DAStU) of Polytechnic of Milan, where she studies the rising inequalities and social insecurity in the middle class. Graduated in Labour Sciences, in 2020 she obtained the PhD in Economic Sociology at the University of Milan, with a thesis on the welfare accessibility (unemployment, family and minimum income benefits) of European citizens who move from a Member State to another within the Union. Even though she mainly applied quantitative techniques of analysis (on EU-LFS and EU-SILC databases), she has recently experienced also qualitative techniques (focus group, in-depth interviews, questionnaires) by taking part in researches on food policies, old-age innovative policies and organizational well-being.
