about me

i do economic and social research. i also love road movies, power pop, blue and teal tones, Slim Aarons, walking with a camera, telecasters & stratocasters, cycling on TV (the perfect soundtrack for summer afternoons), lemon trees, Cesar Manrique's designs and parties, 1960s (and Latin) jazz, brutalism, traditional tattoos, Masats, Siquier and Colita, high rise pants, palm trees, maps, whitewashed houses, the people who smile to dogs and strangers, dolphins and tri-band Penguin Books editions. i do not like Batucadas, naive ideas (driven by unscientific attitudes) and those who treat bar tenders and other essential workers badly (driven by classism)

Sergio Torrejón Pérez | social scientist

PhD in Sociology, interested in the area between economics and sociology. 

In the last years I have been focused on labour market research (occupational change, job quality, labour market segmentation), the impact of technological change on employment (automation and the future of work), inequality and social stratification. 

I have been a visiting researcher in EUROFOUND (Dublin) and the European University Institute (Florence), and now I am currently working as an economic and policy analyst in the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission ('Industrial Strategy, Skills and Technology Transfer' unit). This is the European Commission's science and knowledge service, aimed to carry out research and manage available knowledge to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.

Before joining the European Commission I worked in the Spanish Ministry of Health, Consumer Affairs and Social Wellbeing, in 40dB. doing social and market research and as a teacher in a High School in Rønde (Denmark).
