I earned my Bachelor Degree in Sociology at Università degli Studi di Milano Bicocca, as well as my Master Degree in ‘Territory and Local Policies’, completed in 2013. In my Master thesis I engaged with the analysis of the new town plan introduced in Lombardy in 2005.
My research interests are focused on housing policy, urban informality and financialization of housing. I am currently investigating the financialization of social housing in Lombardy and the informal housing practices within mass-housing neighbourhoods in Milan.
My research approach can count on practical knowledge acquired during a long lasting professional commitment within welfare-related organizations. I have also a prolonged experience within urban movements, as a coordinator of a tenant union in Lombardy.
