  • Profile

    My PhD within the Political and Economic Geographies research group consists in looking through a mixed methods lens into the changing geographies of regional integration and industrial location in the EU in the aftermath of COVID-19, with a focus on Italian firms and their nearshoring strategies.

    Before starting my PhD, I spent four years conducting policy-oriented research in Euro-Mediterranean affairs, both as a junior think-tanker (EMEA) and as assistant scientific coordinator of an EU-funded research network (EMNES). I also have experience in development cooperation, both as staff of a small consulting firm (DevStat) and as member of EU-funded technical assistance teams, with time spent on the field in Albania, Moldova and to a minor extent Ukraine. 

    I speak fluent Italian, French, English, Spanish and Dutch. I also speak some Russian, which I learned to prepare for a four-month overland journey across Eurasia, travelling eastward aboard the Trans-Siberian and westward along the Silk Road.
