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 Doctoral Tutor for the modules of Colonialism and After, School of Global Studies and Sociology of 21st century Britain, School of Law, Politics and Sociology.

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.
