Research interests

I have been involved in several interdisciplinary research projects on management and governance of climate change. I have also studied the management of the first phases of Covid-19 in Italy and new forms of digital vulnerability in time of pandemic. I have also investigated digital inequalities in the UK, and I am currently investigating environmental awareness and digital experience.
