Maude Pugliese is an Assistant Professor of Population Studies at the Institut national de recherche scientifique (INRS), based in Montréal, Canada. Her work explores how individuals and households mix family support and financial products, both credit and saving vehicles, to build private safety nets, using both survey research and comparative historical methods. In previous works, she has examined how the primary residence came to be the mass wealth building vehicle in the US context. Her current work explores how marital status and the structure of kinship networks shape indebtedness and retirement savings in the Canadian context. Before joining INRS, she was a postdoctoral fellow at McGill University and received her PhD from the University of Chicago. In 2017 she received the honorable mention for the Best Dissertation Award of the American Sociological Association.
