Bio. (Tregnago, Verona, 1986) Phd Student in Social and Political Sciences working under the supervision of Donatella Della Porta and Luigi Pellizzoni, at the European University Institute and a member of the Research Center COSMOS, Scuola Normale Superiore, Florence.

Edu. I studied Sociology at the University of Trento (B.A. cum laude, 2009), Social Sciences at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales and Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris (M.A. Trés bien 2011).

Res. In 2011-12 I spent a semester as visiting student at the Humboldt University, Berlin and in 2012-13 I have been Teaching Assistant in Sociological Theory and Sociology of War at the University of Trento. In 2013 I worked as Research Assistant for a project on The Citizens Mobilisations against Chemical Risk in Porto Marghera (Italy) financed by the University of Toulouse 3 – Paul Sabatier.

Phd. Trained particularly in Sociological Theory, Historical, Cultural and Political Sociology, during my Phd dissertation I am trying to intersect Sociology of Knowledge with Social Movements Studies focusing on the the politics of expertise in environmental mobilisations.

Int. I like to cross sociological investigations at both a theoretical and empirical level. I am also interested in what other forms of inquiry – cinema, literature, music, visual art – can tell us about social life and its dynamics.
