Biography

I completed a Laurea Triennale (BA) in International Relations and Human Rights at the University of Padova, Italy (First Class, 2006-2009) and a Laurea Magistrale (MA) in International Cooperation, Development and Human Rights at the University of Bologna, Italy (Distinction, 2010-2012). During my MA I also spent 6 months at the Universität Bremen, Germany as an Erasmus student. 

During and after the MA I worked in asylum-seekers reception with Interculturale Universo NGO in Bologna, Italy and as a communication officer for the Human Rights Nights Organisation in Bologna, Italy.

Role

I am a PhD candidate in Migration Studies (Department of Geography) and part of the Sussex Centre of Migration Research.

I also work as an AT in the module Culture Across Space and Time, convened by Russell King. 

Alongside my PhD I have been working for two major Sussex research projects: the HEIM Project (Higher Education, Internationalisation and Mobility) - Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions, for which I was an Early Career Research Fellow and the YMOBILITY project - Horizon 2020, for which I am a Research Assistant.
