Dr. Francesca Alice Vianello

I am Associate Professor of Sociology of Work at the University of Padua (Italy) and Advisor to the CareOrg project. My main areas of research and teaching are migration, work and gender  and health. I am particularly interested in global care chains, care  work and occupational health and currently PI of the national research  project PRIN "Severe Forms of Labour Exploitation in the Shipbuilding  and Tourism Industry". I am also supervising a post-doctoral research  project on the occupational health of migrant workers in care homes and  agriculture.
