Lluís Mangot-Sala was a PhD student at NIDI. His main focus of study is on health inequalities from a life-course perspective: that is, how life transitions and socioeconomic position influence health behaviors and health outcomes in the population.
He obtained his Bachelor in Sociology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) and a first Master’s in Sociological Research at the University of Barcelona (UB), where he studied the impact of the financial crisis on housing precariousness in Spain and the new social movements that emerged in that context.
Later on, he specialized in Epidemiology and Public Health at the Pompeu Fabra University of Barcelona (UPF). His academic trajectory includes one semester at the Radboud Universiteit van Nijmegen (RU) and one semester at the Humboldt Universität in Berlin (HU).
Lluís has also worked in research on public health issues, such as mental health and addiction, for the Public Health Agency of Barcelona (ASPB) and at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (IMIM-PRBB).
