menu Summary

Architect, urban designer, and researcher

I am a Ph.D. student in the field of Architecture, Urban Design and Public Participation. My research focuses on lay-expert interaction and the creative potential of collaborative design. In particular, I explore innovative design approaches for generating sustainable and life-sustaining places. I am also interested in the topic of knowledge exchange between diverse communities of practice.

I am passionate about projects involving trans-disciplinary cross-fertilisation, creative thinking for problem-solving. I am inclined to learn from people and from other disciplinary fields. I am also eager to keep myself up to date with politics, technology, and architecture.

I obtained an M.Sc. from the Polytechnic Schools of Turin and Milan in Italy, and I am currently working on a Ph.D. research in Germany.
