Welcome to my profile! I am Research Associate at LSE Consulting and Associate Lecturer at the Department of Political Science at UCL. I hold a PhD in European Political Economy from the LSE European Institute, where I was Teaching Fellow in European Politics and Public Policy. In 2018-2019 I was ESRC Post-Doctoral Fellowship (Industrial Strategy) at the LSE European Institute. Prior to joining academia, I have worked as education policy researcher and specialist with national/international organisations and governments for over 15 years, including the National Research Institute of the Italian Ministry of Labour as policy expert for comparative analysis of European education policies and the Italian Ministry of Education. I also work as Research Associate for LSE Consulting, where I contribute as researcher and policy evaluator for several projects on education for a wide range of clients, including the European Commission, CEDEFOP, the European Training Foundation, and the UK Government. Previous qualifications include a MRes in European Studies from the London School of Economics, an MSc in Economics of Arts and Culture from SDA Bocconi School of Management and an MA in History from the University of Pisa. I am also Research Director of the project ‘Civic education and populism’ at 89 Initiative, which examines to what extent the strengthening of populism movements in Europe can be understood as the result of some kind of educational failure and, if so, what might be the role of civic education as a way of strengthening citizens’ political autonomy.
