Curriculum Vitae

My curriculum vitae is on LinkedIn.

My research record demonstrates my engagement with multi-disciplinary academic bodies with international standing in the field of design, architecture and planning, social sciences, and cultural heritage. I hold a Master degree in Architecture at Iuav. During my PhD I studied Interaction Design and User Experience Design. Then, I worked for the Science Technology Societ Program, part of the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (MIT-SHASS) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which typically attracts researchers with broad interests who seek an interdisciplinary approach at the intersection of arts and design, digital, and sciences and humanities.  The MIT-SHASS is widely recognised as one of the best in the world. Amongst other faculty members, it can count 3 Nobel Prize, 8 MacArthur Prize, and 4 Pulitzer Prize Winners.

I am currently a researcher at the School of Museum Studies in Leicester where I am carry on my second Marie Curie research project in collaboration with the University of Cambridge and the Fitzwilliam Museum.  According to the REF2014 the School of Museum Studies is the top research departments in the country in cultural and digital heritage studies, which place the School as one of the best in the world.

During my career, I have been involved in research, Higher Education teaching (including PhD lecturers), and professional activities at public and private institutions, such as Iuav University of Venice, Bocconi University, Sapienza University of Rome, MIT, University of Leicester, University of Cambridge, and University of Cagliari. I demonstrated independent thinking by conducting Design Research applying different methodologies (e.g. qualitative Research, Grounded Theory) and theoretical frameworks (e.g. Knowledge Management Theory, Activity Theory, Situated Learning) to study digital media design and its practice. I have growing track record of publishing in international journals and I have presented my research at several international conferences.
