I am an Italian sociologist.
Between 2012 and 2017, I worked as an Assistant Professor - as external contract professor in the last year - at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, focusing my research on Self-administered Mobile Survey Methodology and on social housing.
I contributed to the teaching activities of the Faculty of Economics and Management, mainly in the field of empirical methods.
Previously, I worked as a research assistant at the University of Trento, Department of Sociology and Social Research, being the Executive Co-ordinator of the departmental Research Laboratory (LaboR).
I have also carried out many research activities on a freelance basis and/or in cooperation with other research organizations.
