Biography

Since September 2018, I am a Research Associate at the University of Sussex. I have completed my PhD in Social Anthropology here, in May 2018. I was supervised by Prof. Elizabeth Harrison and Prof. Evan Killick. My PhD research was part of the broader “Shadows of Slavery in West Africa and Beyond. A Historical Anthropology” (http://shadowsofslavery.org/) project, funded by the European Research Council (ERC grant 313737) and implemented by the University of Milan – Bicocca. The coordinator of this project, Prof. Alice Bellagamba, co-supervised my research. I am also working in the University of Sussex as Doctoral Tutor since September 2017. 

Before starting the PhD programme, I have achieved an MA in Anthropology at the University of Milan - Bicocca in 2009, with a dissertation on the role of traditional authorities in development project in the district of Sefwi Wiawso, Ghana; and an MSc in Anthropology and Development at the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2012, with a dissertation on the capacity of peasants to affect rural development policies in Korhogo district, Ivory Coast. I have also worked in different NGO projects in Chad between 2010 and 2013, spending there a total of 16 months.
