I hold a BA in Philosophy (University of Milan, Italy 2009) and an MA in Social Anthropology (University of Kent, UK 2011) with a training in Documentary Filmmaking (UCL, UK 2012). I have professional experience as social worker and freelance videomaker and photographer between UK and Italy.
My research focuses on Participatory Design with seniors from an anthropological perspective. I look at the collective dimension of ageing, with the aim to connect it through design to the public dimension and social change. My research interests include Design Anthropology, Feminist Theory and DIY culture.
