I’m a Max Weber Fellow working in the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the European University Institute, Fiesole. I was previously a post-doctoral researcher in the Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences of the Scuola Normale Superiore (SNS), in Florence, and a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Political Science of LUISS University, Rome. I’m also a member of the Centre on Social Movements Studies at SNS and a research affiliate of the Italian Institute for Public Policy Analysis, in Rome.
I got a PhD in Political Science in 2013 from the Istituto Italiano di Scienze Umane, in Florence, and I previously studied Methodology and Empirical Research for the Social Sciences (MA, Università di Firenze) and Sociology (BA, Università di Trento). I was visiting fellow at the Center for the Study of Democracy, University of California (USA), and at the Department of Sociology, Universiteit Utrecht (NL).
