I was born in Foggia, in Southern Italy, where I grew up. At the age of 18 I moved to Milan, where I got my bachelor degree in Economics, Statistics and Social Sciencies and had my first work experiences; subsequently I migrated first to Amsterdam, where I obtained an MSc in Contemporary  Asian Studies, and then to Brighton, where I recently completed my PhD in Migration Studies at Sussex. In this way, my own personal background is well linked with my research interests in transnationalism, professional migration and Italian diaspora.
