Personal profile

Research interests


Nadia is a Registered Architect, architectural theorist and researcher in inclusive spatial practices, urban commoning and processes of community empowerment. Her approach to "space" as an ever changing, often unbalanced system of social changes, political negotiations and architectural propositions is positioned at the cross-boundary between architecture and the social sciences. 

Nadia first joined Northumbria University in 2016 as Research Fellow, working on the project “Place and belonging” funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Prior to that, she held positions at the University of Sheffield, where she led the Master in Architectural Design, University of Pavia and Polytechnic of Milan.

Nadia has a PhD in Architecture from the University of Pavia, Italy. She has been guest lecturer and studio reviewer at a number of international schools including Oslo School of Architecture, Tongji University, University of Seville, Polytechnic University of Catalonia and University of Padua. She addressed keynote talks at different instutions including at the Department of Anthropology at the University of Lisbon, the School of Architecture at Harbin Institute of Technology, and the College of Architecture at the Indian Education Society in Mumbai.

Nadia's research has been widely published at international level, through journal articles, monographs and book chapters, and disseminated through conferences and exhibitions. Recently, her works have been exhibited at 5th and 6th Shenzhen and Hong Kong Biennale of Urbanism (2014 and 2016) and Huddersfield Art Gallery (2016).
