LPessin_WebsiteI am a NICHD postdoctoral fellow in the Population Research Institute at the Pennsylvania State University. My research agenda focuses on the unequal consequences of the gender revolution on women’s work and family outcomes across social class,  race, and context. I use quantitative methods to explore variation across countries and time. 

I received a Ph.D. in sociology and demography, at the Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona.  Before joining the Population Research Institute, I spent the last year of my Ph.D. as a visiting pre-doctoral scholar at the Maryland Population Research Center. I am a 2018 Work and Family Researchers Network Early Career Fellow.
