I am a lecturer (RTDA) in Political Philosophy (BA and MA, University of Milan; MSc London School of Economics; PhD University of Milan).

My main interests include democratic theory, pluralism, critical theories of justice, hate speech. Prior to joining the University of Genova, I was a Fulbright Research Scholar in the Political Science Department of Brown University and a Postdoctoral Researcher at LUISS-Guido Carli. I held visiting research positions at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (New Delhi), the Cluster of Excellence “Normative Orders” at the University of Frankfurt, and Brown University. I also held positions as a consultant and as a research associate with international organizations, think tanks, and UN agencies working on migration policy, such as A-id: Agenda for International Development, IOM-China, IOM-Ethiopia, IOM-Gambia, and UNICEF-Bolivia.
